Millwards Master and Boyneviewfantasy among best bets for Romford
David Metcalf | 7 October 2016
Millwards can Master his Romford rivals
There are some decent Open races on a 13-race mixed card at Romford tonight on Racing Post Greyhound TV (Live Sky 468, Freesat 250) and T3 Millwards Master rates the standout bet in heat one of the Friday 500 Night Stayers at 9:56.
Paul Young’s 2016 Coronation Cup star has won 11 of his 40 starts at the venue and has a near 30 per cent strike rate when sporting the white jacket.
He comes into the contest on the back of two solid efforts to make the frame after being slowly away and getting checked at a vital stage having previously shown what he is is capable of when pining from the lids and producing a 13.68 sectional to make all and beat the thriving T6 Illseeyougain by 1 1/2 lengths.
With that re-opposing rival, who has won twice since, having a fast dog on his inside in the shape of T5 Swift Whirlwind there is a possibility of crowding on the outer. Millwards Master can take advantage if starting in his best fashion and quickly put a stranglehold on the race.
Boyneviewfantasy drawn to cut-loose
In heat two of the Friday Night 500 Stayers (10:11), T5 Boyneviewfantasy looks drawn to deliver.
Trained by Phil Simmonds, the son of Premier Fantasy has won five of his 12 starts at the venue and is three from eight when wearing the orange jacket.
Boyneviewfantasy is a real useful sort when getting loose on the bunny and has bags of early pace when timing it right at the lids.
With main market rival T4 Roswell Romanov preferring to be drawn near the rails and a slow starter on his outside, Boynviewfantasy looks ideally housed to blast out and make all.
Canvas Costa makes plenty of appeal
T1 Canvas Costa has a tremendous record at the track and can further enhance it with victory in the 400m Standard Open (10:26).
Ernie Gaskin’s charge has won 17 of his 40 starts at the venue and is 10 from 36 in the grade.
He is all action from the traps and looks nicely drawn on the inside to T2 Twentynineblack who beat him a short-head three starts back.
Twentynineblack ran from one that day with Costa in two, but with the roles now reversed the selection can hold him to the bend to turn in front and gain his revenge.
Toems Lily value in finale
In the Coral Home Of The Price Bomb Standard that brings proceedings to a close (10:40), T6 Toems Lily looks decent value to cause an upset and get the better of the red-hot favourite Evanta Fantasy.
Maurice Rice’s bitch show terrific early pace over course and distance seven days ago when leading until getting chinned close home and beaten a head by T2 Evanta Fantasy.
That was just her second run at the track and she now really seems to be getting her act together.
With T3 Toothill Wizard sure to be heading in at the bend, Evanta Fantasy will have to be on her toes to avoid trouble and if flashing out in her best fashion Toems Lily looks nicely drawn as the sole wide seed to turn the first bend in front and play catch me if you can.
