Chips And Gravy looks tasty on TV card at Romford
Chips And Gravy on the menu in Romford best bets
Chips And Gravy ran a blinder when on six-bend debut, and looks cracking value to land the S1 at 20:50 on tonight’s card at Romford screened live on Racing Post Greyhound TV (Sky 468, Freesat 250).
Martyn Wiley’s youngster fluffed the start completely, before running on strongly to be beaten just 3/4 into third behind Young Phoenix.
It was a highly promising effort given how the race panned out, and Chips And Gravy is entitled to come on significantly for that sighter.
He is also capable of a much slicker exit, as he showed when clocking a respectable 13.94 split in a trial over course and distance, and if getting away on level terms can hold his pitch at the first bend before moving through the gears mid-race to gain his revenge on Young Phoenix.
Dance Costa can waltz to glory
In the A1 at 20:34, T5 Dance Costa can cash-in on a drop in class to further enhance his excellent strike rate at the track.
Phil Simmonds’ dog has won 10 of his 22 starts in the grade and has a 41 per cent strike rate when sporting the orange jacket.
He missed the break last time out in a sprint Open at the venue but had previously landed a hat-trick in impressive fashion.
The drop back into graded company is a big plus and Dance Costa’s last two starts in A1 company have seen him ping out and make all.
Marinas Joe makes plenty of appeal
T1 Marinas Joe scored in terrific style and looks drawn to follow-up in the A1 (22:11).
Paul Young’s dog produced a rapid 3.74 sectional to flash from the lids and land an A2 by 3 1/4 length in a time of 23.74.
That reads very well in the context of this race, despite it representing a stiffer task, and Marinas Joe look ideally housed in the red with a middle and inexperienced runner on his immediate outer.
If breaking in similar fashion, the son of Kinloch Brae holds major claims of turning the crucial first bend in front and quickly establishing a race winning lead.
Droopys Mickey the answer to finale
Young looks to hold claims of landing a quick-fire double on the card with Droopys Mickey in the A1 that brings proceedings to a close (22:26).
The son of Blonde Snapper has only had seven starts at the track and showed what he is capable of last time out, when quickly away and making all to land an Open by 2 1/4 lengths in a time of 24.39.
That win came from the two box and the key to Mickey following-up will be a similar exit which will enable him to boss the inside.
There is no reason why he can’t, especially now dropped back into graded company, and he has relatively low mileage on the clock for his age and remains open to further improvement.
