Evans to gain an emotional winner
Gemma Evans will be desperate to get a winner on the card that remembers her family, taking over the licence from Ernie Gaskin earlier in the year.
Droopys Addition is a classy performer over the 575m trip at Romford, making the final of both the Essex Vase and the Champion Stakes within the last year. He can prove the most popular winner on the night at 20.17.
Mullins winner won’t make him big for his boots
The 400m maiden final at 8.54 can see Mallogs Stormzy score for David Mullins. He was the quickest qualifier from the heats last week and can build on that now.
He’s taken a little while to settle in since making his first start for this kennel but having run up a hat-trick of successes, it’s safe to say he’s in a good place. Capable of trapping quicker than he did last week, he should be away and gone.
Rodney to prove a dapper winner
Dapper Rodney has just a single win to his credit for Nathan Hunt so far, but in his defence, he has kept some very smart company in the main. Most recently he was third in the final of the Category 1 Eclipse Stakes at Nottingham.
He shapes as if the step up to six bends for the first time should be fine for him and the drop back into maiden company at 20.34 sees him in the calmest waters he has swum in for a long time.
Aero has more than just a squeak
Things could hardly have gone worse for Aero Squeak last week. Having missed the break, he got a bump on the run to the bend before being pushed very wide around the opening turn itself.
Paul Young’s charge did incredibly well to get himself back into second place by the time the line came. Capable of trapping much better than that, he can make amends at 18.58.
Orange is the colour to see jet at his best
A slow break has cost Humble Jet the last twice that Roger York’s hound has run at Romford. He has enjoyed an excellent year with wins both here and at Harlow with the return to trap 5 looking a plus at 21.28.
The last time that he was in this slot at Romford, he clocked a very smart 23.95. A repeat of that from the same draw would see him a tough rival to contain.
