Kenny Is Crowned King Of Romford

                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Last night we witnessed a magical final in the Coral Coronation Cup at Romford. The first big final of the year and what a start to the open-race competition scene this was. Adageo Bob was sent off the 11/10 favourite but he was forced to play second fiddle to 6/1 Soviet Kenny in the £5,000 to-the-winner decider.

 

Soviet Kenny took a flier from the boxes and showed scintillating pace recording a 13.44 sectional but hot on his tail was track-record holder Adageo Bob. It was race on and what a race this was, Adageo Bob gave it everything but he just could not pass an inspired Soviet Kenny. At the line there was 0.5L between them in 34.90 with a further 1L back to the fast finishing Farneys Cookie.

 

This was a second victory in the Coronation Cup for John Mullins who won it back in 2009 with Droopys Carvalho. The Mullins family have a rich history in this competition with John's mother Linda Mullins winning this race an incredible three times with Terminator (1989), Linakill Papa (1992) and El Loco (1999).

 

John Mullins on Soviet Kenny

 

"He had been a bit unlucky with trap-draws but we always knew he was a good dog. The plan now is to drop him down to four-bends, he will obviously go for the Derby but his next target will probably be the Arc at Swindon.

"I did not expect it, I'm over the moon and was just pleased he was in the final. He was 33/1 at the start of the competition and we had a bit of that".

 

JACKPOT

 

Punters tonight where chasing a huge Totesport Jackpot of £141,003 entering the last leg there was just £3.50 going through. None of that though was on Soviet Kenny so that means there will be a huge Jackpot rollover for the next Sky Sports meeting (January 27th from Hall Green). The pot is expected to surge over £250,000 with some saying it could be even bigger.
