Rockburst Lenny is a sporting bet to claim gold in the feature event at Romford tonight, the final of the Coral On TV Stayers Trophy over 575m.

The warm-up event for the upcoming Coral Champion Stakes provided some great fare on Monday and, while fastest heat winner Holy Ground was impressive and has a good draw in the final, the Mark Wallis-trained Rockburst Lenny missed his break in the heats but still made the turn in front. And that initial zip may serve him well in the decider.

Elsewhere on the card, Benkaat Boy (8.48pm) will appreciate his return to Romford after a recent fast trial; Irish Derby elimination Westmead Maldini can beat in-form Bubbly Olly on the step up to 575m in a red-hot maiden, while money-buyers will not see past Ardbeg Mentor (10.08pm) from a good pitch inside over 400m.
