Friday night tips

Glanmire Lad, fresh from winning the Coral Romford Puppy Cup final at a packed London Road venue last week, is the star turn there this Friday as Mark Wallis’s flying youngster eyes more gold.

He runs at 9.40pm against rivals from that final with Lenson Champ and Ballymac Josh, but such was the brute pace he showed seven days ago, can he be stopped?

Most valuable race on the card is the final of the Coral On TV Standard where the impressive Aero Tobias (9.24pm) bids to follow up a faultless win in the heats. He posted the fastest time, and a repeat wins this from earlybird Blue Glenard.

Smiler Jack (10.26pm) is on a recovery mission tonight after a shock defeat last week, but the middle draw can do the trick now, while short-shot punters will be keen to back Diesel Sammy (7.31pm) when he eyes a quick double from a better draw this week.

Watch out also for a nice youngster making her UK debut when Airforce Allstar (8.18pm) goes in the maiden 400m, while the extended 575m trip might suit Lenson Ginger (8.50pm) as he steps back up in trip again.

The A1 on the card features a few greyhounds being lined up to represent Romford in the upcoming 2012 BAGS Track Championship, with the vote going the way of Dandy Dude (8.02pm) after a good trial.
