Racing Post Greyhound TV Tips: Henlow, Hove and Romford
Getting involved in the RPGTV action?
"Undoubtedly the one greyhound everyone wants to see win is former Greyhound of the Year Jimmy Lollie, who having shaken off the cobwebs on his comeback from retirement in the Betfair Trainers Championship last week, will not be hard pressed to register Open race win number 72 in the 20:18 at Hove"
Hove and Henlow provide stay-at-home greyhound fans with stacks of live action courtesy of Racing Post Greyhound TV tonight, with Open race fans especially well-catered for.
Undoubtedly the one greyhound everyone wants to see win is former Greyhound of the Year Jimmy Lollie, who having shaken off the cobwebs on his comeback from retirement in the Betfair Trainers Championship last week, will not be hard pressed to register Open race win number 72 in the 20:18 at Hove - albeit at prohibitive odds.
Trainer Seamus Cahill can also be on the mark with Sakara Star, who too ran with a lot of credit at the same meeting behind Taylors Sky and can upset likely favourite Droopys Vito in the 21:56. While his future will eventually lie over six bends, he boasts a good record at the Sussex track and should offer a shade of value.
Ken Tester's young pup Droopys Paige has been improving from run to run and is worth staying with in the Maiden at 20:02, where she is fancied to bound home off the final bend.
Dean Childs fields a strong team and should be on the score sheet, hopefully with Malbay Phanter - just denied on his return last week - in the 20:34, while kennelmate Whata Lovely Job, who lost his comeback race at the traps last time, shouldn't make the same mistake in the 19:46. Glenashe Rock, was another to spoil his chances at traps rise in his latest outing, but can make amends in the Hurdles Open at 21:06, where his task will be eased by a vacant trap alongside.
Not to be outdone, Henlow is also loaded with Opens, but we'll restrict ourselves to a brace of selections, with Hi Rumble taken to out-trap his rivals in a race of early speedsters (21:15). Dennis Elliot's charge has proved hard to hold in recent starts and is taken to make all. Blackrose Ned who forced a dead-heat with the selection last time, can also frank the form by claiming the race that follows at 21:32, with the feeling also that he may also be able to control the early pace.
Romford's Friday night card looks ripe for a number of wagers, with red hot Slick Sian expected to continue her winning streak in a competitive Bitches race at 20:18. With neighbour Fancy Socks, having been sluggish at the start recently, Keith Allsopp's charge can make all from the inside draw. A lay of badly drawn Sequential in the same race can further enhance the profits.
The feature TV Standard Trophy final at 21:24 looks a belter but is probably not a race to get too stuck into. However, prolific winning Nans Turbo looks well drawn in trap one and is at least worthy of an interest.
Aero Joker has suffered a few reverses in recent weeks but dropped in class and back over 575m at Romford can return to winning ways for Mark Wallis in the 22:26, while Pennys Option can mop up his third successive 750m race at the track by taking the finale at 22:40.
