Friday night tips

Get down to Romford this Friday for some top-class racing, and some vital clues for next Wednesday’s live-on-Sky Sports bonanza from the Coral track.

It’s Coral Champion Stakes semi-finals night, with the first two in each semi making it through to the televised £10,000 final. And the first heat at 8.48pm with a cracker with Local Dee Jay fancied to take advantage of the strong possibility of Longwood Days holding up the rampant Honey Trampas.

The second semi looks tailor-made for fastest first-round scorer Droopys Hester (9.04), although the ‘Bubbly Club’s Bubbly Verdasco could go well at a price inside as he bids to make another Champion Stakes final.

Go with Hester’s kennelmate Droopys Luisao (9.20) in the third semi, while pick of the night’s other bets might be the back-to-form Slick Citi (10.24) over 400m after a good second at Nottingham.
