Friday night tips

After the excitement of Puppy Cup final night and the star that is Eden Star, there is just one final at Romford Stadium this Friday.

Longford Meg is fancied to follow up a fluent heat win in the Coral On TV Bitches Trophy final over 400m (9.20pm).

Jim Daly’s bitch was a recent star of Sky’s programme from Harlow and a burst of early pace might well see repeat a fastest heat win, and then go on to better things. Remember her name.

Other bets on the night include the Gifkins family-owned and trained Soviet Nailer (9.52pm), who is fancied to lead up and with no hurdles to negotiate could just hold on.

A fast start from Sundance Saffy (9.36pm) might just see her bounce back and make all over the extended trip.

The in-form Rio Ravel (10.24) is best drawn in a field of railers in the penultimate contest and will take the beating.
