Neither Mark Wallis nor Patrick Janssens had cause for celebration after Romford’s two finals were completed on Friday.

In the Coral Essex Vase final nine-time champion trainer Wallis had to settle for the runner-up spot as Roswell Romanov came home in second.

Lakenheath handler Wallis also saw Ninja Penny finish in fourth, while Hockwold-based Janssens was represented by Barricane Carina, who came a place further back in fifth.

Janssens also had an interest in the Coral Golden Sprint final with third-placed Bockos Alfie.

Meanwhile, Wallis’ Brinkleys Twirl was due to run in the Ladbrokes Puppy Derby last night, while the Trainers Championship on Saturday has been postponed.
