Romford and Sunderland are the two venues for this Friday evening’s action on Racing Post Greyhound TV. You can watch tonight’s live greyhound racing on Sky channel 212 or Freesat channel 401. The first race is at 7.25pm and the last at 10:40pm. All thirteen of the races on Romford’s card are open contests, while Sunderland host a thirteen race graded card. There are no early odds from Sunderland unfortunately but the bookies have come up with prices on four races from Romford, so they are the ones I have covered today. Ladbrokes offer best odds guaranteed on all tonight’s dog racing plus a £200 deposit bonus for all new customers.
This bitches race is a 400m contest which sees the Oaks runner up Skate On put in as the 11/8 favourite with Betfred. Liz McNair’s bitch ran a good looking trial round here earlier this week and I can’t really see past her this evening. Romford veteran Sequential is the obvious danger in trap one but Skate on just has that extra bit of class and that should tell here.
Back Trap 4 Skate On @ 11/8 with Betfred
The final of the Coral On TV Trophy here which looks to be the race of the night. The bookmakers can’t split Nans Turbo and Lil Risky who are the 7/4 joint market leaders. Nans Turbo was super impressive in the first round, winning by a full seven and a half lengths, while Lil Risky went down by a length to Pams Tomjo. On that performance, the value bet here is to stick with the Hove raider to make it two from two over course and distance. Take the 5/1 on offer with William Hill.
Back Trap 3 Pams Tomjo @ 5/1 with William Hill
The penultimate live race on Romford’s card is the another over the 400m trip where we have a potentially very decent greyhound coming out of trap six. Liz McNair’s King Nicky has run two very good trails over course and distance, particularly his effort earlier this week when clocking 23.96. The only wide runner in the race, this one rates a confident bet.
Back Trap 6 King Nicky @ 13/8 with Paddy Power
I’m keen to end the evening on a positive note and with the Mark Wallis trained Planning, we can do just that. Like my previous selection, this greyhound has the best of the draw and looks to have returned to form in fine fashion following a few below par efforts. The Essex Vase finalist should have too many guns for main rival Ding Hero tonight.
