Romford's final meeting of the year on RPGTV - look out for the new schedule in 2018 - looks a typically high-class affair and, as ever, The Lord is all over it with his Flying Four fancies.

Race of the night might well be the clash between Champion Stakes winner Murrys Act and Coronation Cup hero Roswell Romanov (22:01).

The first race to concentrate on sees the Hayley Keightley kennel in with a huge chance of success given they send out the two market leaders in Theres Mahogany and Ballydoyle Maura (20:53) - and it's the latter who surely takes the beating.

A classy four-bender who ran third in the Oaks, she stepped up for the heats of this Maiden Stayers (575m) competition in fine style and brings the fastest time to the table for this final. There is improvement to come and a handy position behind her kennelmate sets things up.

Another maiden final now test, this time over 400m, and the eyes are drawn to Kevin Hutton's Droopy Zaza (21:09). He was also the fastest heat winner after a runaway victory last week, and a repeat looks on the cards to edge out Newlawn Jeff.

The latter wasn't that far behind on the clock and might improve still further after a recent break, but Zaza surely has a better exit in his locker here and impressed when pulling further away once getting in the clear. This shorter four-bend trip really plays to his strengths it seems.

Still over one lap, and a cracking 400m race next, which sees Cotton Pants (21:44) look to deny in-form Dower Forgold. Both have some lightning wins here at Romford and their private duel might well decide this - although don't completely rule out Chopchop Hope.

However, the middle pitch for Mark Wallis's runner might well be enough for him to make a winning Romford return. He's run two good races at Henlow since winning here earlier this month, and could be fresher for the experience - which helps his trapping?

Race of the night might well be the clash between Champion Stakes winner Murrys Act and Coronation Cup hero Roswell Romanov (22:01). Both bring outstanding Romford lines to the table, but maybe the red jacket gets first run inside - the Wallis dog won well at Henlow last time.
