Some decent Open race action from Romford tonight (Live on RPGTV, Sky 212) and there are three dogs which look value punts at the odds on offer.
In the 9.06pm Trap 5 Data Juliet looks overpriced at 5/1.
Semaus Cahill’s bitch is a lightly raced and improving sort who has bags of early pace.
She made all to win a maiden Open sprint at Hove over 285m and went on to put in a similar performace at the track when landing an A6 over 515m when sent off the even money favourite.
The daughter of Rumble Impact is also entitled to come on for a look around her following a decent trial where she produced a 3.71 sectional to clock 24.52.
I can see her outrapping Trap 6, and with possible trouble on her inside with Trap 4 Ali’s Avenger heading for the rails on the run-up there is every chance that she can use her sprint pace to lead at the first.
Given that she has proven winning form over much futher than this 400m she is then going to be hard to peg back.
To me she is more of a 7/2 shot for this, so the 5s on offer with Coral and Stan James looks far too big.
In the 9.40pm Rayvin Lad looks to have a plot draw in Trap 6 and makes plenty of appeal at the standout 4/1 on offer with bet365.
Liz McNair’s is a very useful sort who ran well in the Laurels at Belle Vue.
After finishing a 4 1/2 length third to Farloe Warhawk he was far from disgraced when coming third to Jaytee Lightning in the semi-final in what was an extrenely hot contest.
Since then he has finished a fair third to Load Esteem from an unfavorable draw in Trap 4 at Hove where he got crowded at the second before being beaten 2 1/2 lengths, and his two recent trials at that track have been encouraging.
His previous time of 24.45 in a two dog trial here, where he was slowly away and produced a 3.81 sectional, also leaves him with not too much to find on the clock – especially as he is capable of trapping much better than that.
Another plus is that he is the sole wide seed in the line-up, and with those on the inside evenly matched as regards splits there could be trouble which will enable him to get a clear run and lead if getting away in his best style.
I had him priced up at around the 11/4 mark, so for a dog of his calibre with his ideal draw the 4s on offer looks far too big.
The other that I like is Trap 4 Guinness Sky in the 9.56pm at 4/1 with Coral, Hills and Stan James.
Seamus Cahill’s dog is a useful sort when getting it right at the traps, and could be well housed here with three evenly matched early pace dogs on his inside all craving the rail.
If he can run straight to the bend then he could well capitalise on any trouble on his inner, and although Trap 5 is no mug from the lids he has the benefit of being on his inside.
The selection certainly has very little to find on the clock, with only Trap 3 having produced a quicker time over course and distance, and it’s worth remembering that back in November he showed enough pace to lead up the likes of Dower Matt and Jet Steam Odds before being baulked at the first and being beaten 3 1/2 lengths.
If he can break in simlar style here then he could take some catching if turning unscathed at the first.
Daily Sport recommended bets:
9.06pm – T5 Data Juliet (5/1 Coral, Stan James)
9.40pm – T6 Rayvin Lad (4/1 bet365 – BOG)
