Timeform provide selections from Romford on Friday...
"A recent St Leger finalist, he comes out top from a ratings perspective.."
Timeform on Ridgedale Max
Our first selection comes in heat 1 of the Coral Essex Vase, with DROOPYS GOLD (Trap 5, 18.44) fancied to get himself safely through to round two. Seamus Cahill's charge has taken well to the intermediate distance of 575 metres, impressing with his exploits on the clock, and another swift exit from the traps can see him home in front.
Our second selection features in heat 5, with RIDGEDALE MAX (Trap 3, 19.49) expected to book his place in the next round. A recent St Leger finalist, he comes out top from a ratings perspective and provided he escapes any early trouble spots, we're hopeful of a very bold showing.
One hound who was mightily impressive last week was MADABOUT FINN (Trap 5, 20.21) and he can land the Romford Friday Night 500 Standard Final. The son of Superior Product looks well housed in the orange jacket, particularly given he is outside four railers, and with a smashing 23.81 to call upon last time, he looks to hold excellent claims.
