As we often mention on this page – its pays to follow sprinters in form and this is again the case in the 8:20 contest from Ripon this evening where we strongly fancy Roman River to continue winning ways and though the price has gone throughout the morning is still worth an interest at the 6/5 available with BetFair.
The team here at the Guv compile our speed figures for the flat season and every so often a figure pops up that really makes you take notice, and this was the case with Roman River last time out at Haydock when ridden by Slvestre De Sousa and won comfortably by 2 1/2 lengths. The figure that day was by far the best on the card, the best on the day, and very much suggested that there was plenty more to come from the lightly raced 3 year old. He has been raised 9lbs for that effort but i doubt that will be enough to stop him this evening.
Midsummer Knight brings in a solid level of form – specifically recently at Windsor, and may be the main danger but look no further than Roman River who should be supported and should prove very hard to beat once again. A horse on the upgrade.
