5:35 Leicester 

The 5:35 race from Leicester is a Class 4 handicap over 7f.

The one for me here is RAATEA NAP for the Marcus Tregoning team. The team are flying after winning the Summer Mike last weekend and can add another winner to the rally here.

This horse was unlucky not to win last time out finishing third and that was a stronger race than this one appears to be. I think he is a lot better than this current mark and will have no issues on the likely fast ground here.


5:55 Haydock

The 5:55 race is one for the stayers over 1m6f and will likely take some getting on the ground round Haydock.

I’m really surprised DANCING HARRY EW in the rank outsider here as he was eye-catching last time out finishing strongly over 1m4f for 4th place. He is is one of the least exposed in the line up here and steps up to 1m6f which will certainly suit. He’s trained by Roger Charlton which is only a positive and Jason Watson takes the ride, good e/w bet for me.


6:25 Haydock

The 6:25 from Haydock is a Listed contest over 1m4f. Trueshan heads the market for Alan  King and should come on for his last run.

The horse I like is ISPOLINI for the Charlie Appleby team. I think he would have needed the comeback run on the AW last time and his best form has come on turf so returning to turf here is an obvious plus. William Buick is riding out of his skin and this horse shown useful form last term and I expect him to progress again starting here.


6:55 Haydock

The 6:55 race is a sprint race over 7f and Happy Power is the market leader after chasing home Limato last time out.

I like HAPPY POWER here as that was a very strong run last time and this is a step down in class. He’ll have the least issues out of the market principles on this ground and he’ll be staying on strongly over what will be a stiff 7f at Haydock.


8:35 Leicester 

My final selection comes in the finale at Leicester.

I fancy PETIT BAY  NB to follow up his win last time out here. He was impressive there staying on strongly coming from off the pace. A 9lb rise is fair for that in my opinion and he can complete a double with top jockey Ben Curtis taken three reigns.
