Romanov set to turn on the Romford class.
FLYING TONIGHT'S RPGTV GUIDE ROSWELL ROMANOV suffers the occasional reverse at Romford but it is generally headline news when it happens and such an outcome looks unlikely in the final of the Friday Night 500 Stayers over 575m there at 9.09, writes Jonathan Kay.
Mark Wallis's dog is nine from 11 over the course and distance this year and has a chunk in hand on the clock on heat form, and even more pertinent may be an ability to win from off the pace as it is always possible he will be out-trapped unlike when making all seven days ago.
However, Wallis could suffer a couple of setbacks later on the card with former assistant Patrick Janssens fancied to turn over a couple of the champion trainer's prolific winners.
Janssens' BARRICANE HAZARD ran a blinder in defeat, ironically behind Wallis's Clondoty Alex, as he posted a best Romford time last week and is capable of turning over veteran Calco Flyer in the 10.01 over 400m.
The aforementioned Clondoty Alex sets a good standard in the 400m finale at 10.23 but Janssens' BARRICANE JACK produced his best-ever start at the track from the same box in three he occupies this evening when winning a maiden final in April and is a very viable value alternative.
THATCHERS ROMEO also has a fast start in him and a ping break against a field of inconsistent trappers in the 9.26 over 400m can suffice.
Paul Young's dog sometimes struggles to hold his pitch to the bend but can do so here and will then prove very tough to reel in.
David Mullins' Me Old Mucker (7.46) and Wallis's Parkers Dynamite (8.03, ex-Slouane Wonder) are the picks in 400m maiden heats, while Janssens' Barricane Jagger (8.21) and Barricane Tommy (8.37) can take heats of a 575m maiden event.
Other Romford picks are Paul Young's Young Chaos (8.53) and Glamorous Sharif (9.44), while the pre-RPGTV opener over 225m at 6.36 can go to Ernie Gaskin's Canvas Costa.
