Dinner looks tasty on TV card at Romford

Dinner Twobobs value to deliver in Maiden Final
T5 Dinner Twobobs has a progressive profile and looks cracking value to land the 400m Maiden Final (21:06) on an excellent 13-race Open card at Romford tonight screened live on Racing Post Greyhound TV (Sky 468, Freesat 250).
Jim Reynolds’ charge has progressed through the grades and was impressive when landing a first Open race success at the track seven days ago.
The son of Droopys Scolari produced a 3.78 sectional and overcame a bump at the first bend to make all and beat the re-opposing Shaneboy Sol by 1 3/4 lengths.
With four railers on his inside, a similar start can see Dinner Twobobs captalise on any jostling to lead at the first and quickly put the race to bed.
Booze can land the beer money in sprint
T5 Bolshoi Booze has a terrific record at the track and can further enhance it with victory in the 225m Sprint (20:02).
Phil Simmonds’ son of Kinloch Brae has won 30 of his 77 starts at the venue and is 10 from 18 when sporting the orange jacket.
He has a bags of early pace when timing it right as a lids open and a flashy best time of 13.50 to his name.
That sets a clear standard in this line-up and prior to missing the break when beaten last week Bolshoi Booze had made all to land two impressive victories over course and distance.
With the possibility of crowding on the inside he can ping out for another trap-to-line success.
Droopys Cambs drawn to attack
In the Bet With Coral Online, On Mobile & In-Shops Standard over 400m (22:11), T4 Droopys Cambs can exploit what looks a good draw to land the spoils.
Paul Young’s dog is in top form at present and comes into the contest on the back of an impressive success at Harlow earlier in the week.
He is also unbeaten in two runs over course and distance from the black jacket, producing consistent sectionals of 3.72 and 3.78.
They compare favourably with T3 Never Your Fault who tends to edge inwards, and with Chopchop Blakey in Trap 5 preferring to be in the stripes he should get a clear run to the bend and can pace-up to turn in front.
Fantasy fancied to fly home
T4 Boyneviewfantasy is another that has a good draw and looks the answer to the Coral Supports The RGOA Stayers over 575m (22:26).
Phil Simmonds’ son of Premier Fantasy has thrived since being stepped up to six bends, winning three of his last four starts over course and distance.
On each occasion he has shown bags of early pace and the form of his victory over Johns Present seven days ago has been given a boost with the runner-up having won in last night’s first round heats of the Coral Essex Cup at Hove.
Boyneviewfantasty also has a lightning 13.57 sectional to his name, and with the three dogs on his inside all battling for the rails should get acres of space on the run to the first bend to enable him to establish a winning lead.
