Off to greyhound racing the for the first time tonight at Romford.

I know a few on here know a bit about greyhounds so any betting related tips for tonight is massively appreciated.

Don't bet on a dog that shits during the pre race parade. It is a sign that it is not hungry enough to put maximum effort into chasing after potential food (albeit that 'prize' turns out to be in reality a stuffed toy). Any time I've been dog racing it's been good fun. Good luck.

Look at www.myracing.com He normally does pretty good, tips normally go up about 6ish

Thanks for that. He seems to know what he is talking about so I think i'll have a nibble at some of his tips. He already has a few for Romford there so I'll pretend I know what I am talking about!

At Romford dogs as at all tracks, watching the betting is a must to see which dog is being backed, following the money is always a good pointer.
I always reckon there are three dogs trying and three dogs not in every graded race, open races maybe not.
At the end of the day enjoy your evening, drinks are very reasonably priced at Romford, and normally the atmosphere is great.
Good luck.

Thanks Steven.

Going with a guy from work who organised it. Its 11 for entry, something to eat (Burger in a polystyrene box), 2 drinks and 1 bet which I think is great value.

Looking forward to it! Going to the casino tomorrow so hoping to come away at least break even!

Are there bookies on site like at the horse racing?

We went to Belle Vue for a mates stag do, similar deal but as we got it via Groupon or something it was under a tenner. Good night out and was full of drunken hen nights the night we went.

Four bookies in the main area waiting for your cash.

I always back with the young big bloke 2nd from the right, if you hoover and dog you are looking to back is 4/1 for example he normally asks what are you looking for, reply a bit of 9/2 or 5/1 and he will oblige.

Pick the one with the meanest looking trainer because he's probably given his dog the most steroid and hormone injections.

Jesus Romford is an eye opener! I got to Stratford and a guy was being detained for assaulting members of staff! Then at Romford dogs there was a group of hideously drunk women who were so stereotypically Essex it was untrue. It's another world over the east!

Great evening though, the groupon voucher is a cracking deal, would highly recommend a night at the dogs. Mixed bag as regards results, probably down overall but will hope not to be even further down at the casino tonight!

The ice hockey rink and the Raiders fans were an eye opener as well...

I can imagine. I wouldn't exactly call the locals 'friendly'!
