Romford greyhounds preview and free betting tips from Aoife Corrigan

Dogs expert Aoife Corrigan has four selections for Friday night, as good-quality greyhounds action takes place at Romford.

Romford Friday night selections

7.18 – Trap 1 Phoneix Best

7.56 – Trap 1 Droopys Good

8.38 – Trap 6 – Phoenix Puma

8.54 – Trap 6 Storys Direct

A graded and open card on offer and I have four selections I think can go well, with the first of those running at 718 in the shape of Trap 1 Phoenix Best. This dog started his career at Central Park before moving to Ireland and subsequently back to UK soil. He hit the rail on his return here but still posted a decent clock so he can come on for the run and go well on the fence. Trap 6 Right Joe was a winner over C&D the last day and will be fancied but if Phoniex Best can trap well and put his best paw forward I expect him to return with a win.

Onto my second selection which runs at 756 and it's Trap 3 Droopys Good, an ex-Irish runner who ran at the top grade when over there. He was very impressive on his first look at the track in June and if repeating that and improving even further should be in the shake-up. Trap 4 Jeopardy Storm is the fastest in the line-up and if repeating that run will be involved but I am hoping that there is plenty of scope of improvement with Droopys Good and he can win on debut.

Trap 6 Phoenix Puma is flying, winning over C&D on his last two starts, and can take the 8.38. He has improved on the clock and more improvement again will see him involved. Trap 1 Carter Bar is a class act when on-song and is well drawn on the rail so will have a say, but Phoenix Puma is flying and if he can ping the lids like he has been doing he can get another win.

And onto my final selection which runs at 854, the main final on the night, where I am siding with Trap 6 Storys Direct who got himself back to winning ways last week when challenging off the second bend and running out an easy winner. Trap 2 Aero Activate was the other semi-final winner and should be competitive but the selection stays well and is taken to land the feature.
