Friday night tips
Another quality card at Romford this Friday is spiced by the Coral On TV Maiden Stayers Trophy final over 575m in which the Monmore trainer Chris Allsopp has the nap hand with half of the field!
Allsopp’s trio include heat winners Sidelight and Sharp Bullet, plus the strong Joscar, but they could all be out of luck with Keith Allsop (no relation!) looking good for victory if Swift Saleen (9.24pm) repeats his lightning start in the heat and escapes the pack.
Millridge Blue (7.31pm) won well last week and another sprint victory looks on the cards in the opener, with trainer David Allen perhaps having a ready-made replacement for the sidelined Fernhill Jess.
Tunnel Tiger (8.18pm) made up huge ground last week and, if turning handy, might be tough to hold over 400m, while Hove raider Droopys Franklin (8.34pm) has shaped as if 575m will suit and could win the maiden stayers race.
Sids Ninja (8.50pm) ran a decent race behind a good winner latest and might be the answer to a cracking maiden race, with Crucial Kaka the biggest danger after staying on well latest behind Glory Stream.
And Glory Stream (10.11) himself will be tough to hold if pinging the lids like he did last week and looks a nice prospect, with Sequential (9.06) set to bounce back from a defeat last week with the wider draw set to help her trap better.
Nans Turbo (10.26) impressed last week and could double up in a cracking 400m race, where Sharons Return and Millstreet Lar are big dangers if starting faster, while Droopys English (10.40) could get back on track with a plot draw in the finale.
