The unofficial Romford Sprint Championship staged their latest series of eliminators at Nottingham on Monday night.

The first bout of the night saw a re-match between Phil Simmonds’ Dower Forgold and the David Mullins trained Troy Bella (Tyrur Big Mike-Fire Height Brid, Feb 16) over the 305m course in the first of the £500 finals. Revenge was served with the Mullins runner making it three from four over course and distance with a 17.59 (+20) run.

The other outstanding performance on the night came from Anna Thompson’s puppy Madabout Him (Droopys Jet-Madabout Her, Aug 16) who romped up by six lengths in a decent 28.58 (+40) for the 480m.

* After making a forgettable debut last week as the Monday night Nottingham tipster, Mark Pierrepont bounced back with two winners (5-4f, 11-10f-NAP) and a third (sh, nk).
