Henlow takes centre-stage on RPGTV on Sunday and The Lord is back with some Flying Four advice
"‘Chunky’ is good fresh at a track and Kevin Hutton’s dog can break faster from the midfield billet and could secure the all-important advantage at the first bend before powering down the back straight to strike gold."
What a clash to kick things off in the heats of the Xmas 460.
Savana Donie versus Forest Chunk (20:00) is a cracking match-up and will divide opinion. Both are pretty lightly-raced of late and perhaps the sharpest to stride takes a big advantage here, and Donie might be better drawn.
However, 'Chunky' is good fresh at a track and Kevin Hutton's dog can break faster from the midfield billet and could secure the all-important advantage at the first bend before powering down the back straight to strike gold.
Next up is a trappy five-runner affair. Foxwood Boom and All About Class are closely matched on their form last time and go well if clearing the other. However, might the white jacket head to the rails from the boxes, squeezing things up inside?
It could mean Drumcrow Darcy (20:15) has the draw of draws outside. He runs from trap five with a vacant trap inside and Kevin Hutton's dog, a possible improver after just six races, might always be dominating the issue despite this being a first taste of Henlow.
The third leg of the Flying Four could prove the most trappy of the quartet, with Drumcrow Pete's (20:30) leadability claims looking strong for the Paul Crowson camp, although a sharper exit than last week is required for him to bounce back. A best time of 27.81sec stands out.
The last leg is over 550m and Bubbly Diamond (21:15) versus Sonny Da Boy might divide opinion. The latter's form at Harlow makes him a big player, but the red jacket looks a real improver after just two races and the draw looks ace for Lee Gifkins's dog.
