The final of the Golden Sprint competition raced over 400m at Romford takes place Friday evening at 9:24pm and whilst BetPal’s ante-post selection takes its place in the 6 dog line up we feel that there is value to be had in backing another selection at 5/1 with Stan James.

Betpal advised backing Glanmire Lad ante-post at 10/1 and he has progressed to the final whilst finding his price cut to as short as 9/2. However, Glanmire Lad has not performed to the same level it had been pre-competition and whilst he still has a live chance in the final it makes sense to increase our chances by backing a dog that is very well drawn in the final.

Mottos Impact looks to be the best drawn dog in the final and he is Betpal’s tip for the Golden Sprint final. The inside looks full of danger with Garryglass Rodge horribly drawn in trap 3 and he will instantly dive for the rails out of the boxes. This will put paid to the chances of the short-priced favourite Farloe Barracuda in trap 2 if he does not get the finest of breaks.

Trap 1 Droopys Loner could be a danger if she avoids that trouble at the first bend but she hasn’t been breaking as well as she can and it would seem that she won’t clear the bend safely. This opens up the race to the outside where Mottos Impact will come from trap 5 and looks primed for a perfect clear run.

Mottos Impact has shown blistering early thus far in the competition and carded a fastest of the competition 23:72 in the semi-final and there is nothing to suggest that the dog cannot repeat that run. A repeat will be enough to win the race especially with the likely trouble on the inside. If he doesn’t come away as well as he has then Betpal’s ante-post selection Glanmire Lad might just get the run of the race from the 6 box.
