Romford's extravaganza of top-class action continues with the TV Trophy final plus the heats of the Puppy Cup tonight - all live on RPGTV (Sky 431). Check out Darrell Williams' best bets...
"Not only does Riverside Honey hold a minimum five length advantage over the opposition but her draw as the only wide seed ensures she can control the pace and having handled the circuit admirably without the benefit of a trial last week she can even be expected to improve on her qualifying round performance"
Irish raider Riverside Honey was not only the fastest winner in last week's TV Trophy heats but also claimed a new track best for the gruelling 925m trip and with Graham Holland's bitch expected to lead she can be backed to follow up in the final (20:53). Not only does she hold a minimum five length advantage over the opposition but her draw as the only wide seed ensures she can control the pace. Although picked up in the Dorando on Derby final night the sharper track at Romford plays to her strengths and having handled the circuit admirably without the benefit of a trial last week she can even be expected to improve on her qualifying round performance.
No breeze for Aayamza on the inside
Aayamza Breeze saw off old rival and defending champion Savana Winner last week but while Mark Wallis' bitch is respected, she faces potential competition for early dominance on the inside while her lacklustre effort from the previous week remains fresh in the mind. Diane Henry's 2018 winner who won that clash a fortnight ago clearly has the ability to retain her crown but failed to take her chance last week and is hard to support with complete confidence.
Carat has the tools in hot heat
The supporting Puppy Cup may not have the strength in depth of some recent renewals but with Badminton Donal and Droopys Carat engaged is certainly not lacking at the top end. The first named lost little in defeat to his rival last week and having drawn a moderate heat (19:03) should bounce back to winning ways albeit at a short price. Droopys Carat defends a two from two record over the 400m trip but can come through by far the toughest heat (19:49) with his record unscathed.
A small stake on Jake
Jakes Magic suffered a surprise early exit from the East Anglian Derby but can use his early pace to good effect (19:33) and is also suggested as a speculative ante post play given the four places on offer each-way with Sportsbook.
Pacey Savana Class can continue his excellent run by securing an early advantage in a one-off four bend contest (21:08) while Ballymac Diego to beat Champion Stakes runner-up Ten More looks a playable forecast over 575m (21:26)
