Race 1 Haydock 13:10 Handicap (Class 5) 10f

365365103 Cathayensis
All 3 wins have come at Newcastle but confirmed she's effective on turf when fourth at Redcar 10 days ago. Return to this trip will suit and she has to be of interest.
9-9Christian HowarthGrant Tuerlocked3/13.5/117
365365121 Dogged
Losing run stretches back to 2019. Down in the weights and threatening to come good for this yard, hampered by a loose horse at Thirsk last time. Up in trip. One to consider.
9-10Jonny PeateRebecca Menzieslocked3.5/12.5/129
365365207 Intercessor
Long way clear of the rest when runner-up in a C&D handicap in April. Up 5 lb for that and in nothing like the same form at Ripon but he can bounce back.
9-4Aidan KeeleyJohn Gallagherlocked4/12.5/138
365365202 Zambezi Magic
Losing run mounting up but ended 2021 in good order with a trio of in-frame efforts. Held up in a steadily-run race at Chester so that run overlooked and this represents a drop in class.
9-10Jordan WilliamsBernard Llewellynlocked4.5/16.5/144
3653652416 Hot Team
Showed a willing attitude when landing 6-runner handicap over 9.2f at Hamilton in September. Another sound effort at Newcastle a week later but no surprise were he to just need this having left Richard Fahey in the interim.
9-4Liam BrownePatrick Morrislocked7/125/1257
365365335 Balqaa
Improved form on the back of a wind op and fitted with cheekpieces when landing 1m handicap at Newcastle in January. Better than result on several occasions subsequently for Ivan Furtado but has since moved yards.
9-4Gianluca SannaStella Barclaylocked9/111/122
3653651814 Fandabidozi
Had just a maiden win to this name and off the track since November. Has left Mark Johnston and this trip could be on the sharp side for new yard (has had a wind op).

Race 2 Haydock 13:40 Maiden (Class 4) 10f

3653652411 Chichen Itza
Stepped up on debut run when third of 8 in maiden at Newcastle (7.1f) in September. Very much the type to make a better 3-y-o as her stamina is drawn out and she's in top hands.
9-2Kevin StottSir Michael Stoutelocked0.73/10.8/110
365365204 Crystal Caves
180,000 gns yearling, Almanzor filly. Half-sister to several winners, including smart 8.6f-1¼m winner Riven Light and useful 2-y-o 7f winner Last Waltz. Clear promise amidst greenness starting out at Ascot and sure to improve for red-hot yard.
9-2Cieren FallonWilliam Haggaslocked4.5/15.5/122
3653652046 Mimikyu
From a family connections know well but could manage only eighth of 13 in maiden at Nottingham (8.3f, soft) on debut, not knocked about. Off 6 months and up in trip.
9-2Sean LeveyJohn & Thady locked6/15/117
365365345 Darmoiselle
Dubawi filly who is bred to be smart but seemed too green when tenth of 12 in a novice at Sandown (10f, good) on debut last month. Could be a different proposition this time.
9-2Kieran ShoemarkJohn & Thady locked8.5/16/129
36536507 Queen Of Change
Sea The Stars filly. Closely related to very smart winner up to 1¼m Century Dream and 1m winner Banna. Dam 6f winner. Lot to like on paper.
9-2Harry BurnsSimon & Ed locked10/112/120
365365332 Control
Minor promise in a brace of novice events 5 months apart at up to 1m.
9-2Daniel MuscuttJohn Butlerlocked80/140/150
365365393 Craft In Silk
Too green to show much when fourteenth of 15 in maiden at Newbury (10f, good to firm) on debut 39 days ago.

Foaled March 16. Dark Angel colt. Half-brother to useful 7f/1m winner Mother Country. Dam 2-y-o 7f/1m winner, runner-up in UAE 1000 Guineas. Showed plenty to work on amid greenness when fifth of 8 in novice event at Ascot (5f, good to firm, 8/1) on debut 19 days ago, not knocked about. Will improve.
9-7Kieran ShoemarkSaeed bin Suroorlocked1.63/11.62/11
36536596 Maxi King
Foaled March 9. 280,000 gns foal, €50,000 yearling, Belardo colt. Half-brother to smart 2-y-o 6f winner Minzaal. Dam unraced. Fared best of the newcomers when second of 8 in maiden at Nottingham (6.1f, good to firm) on debut 9 days ago, doing good work late on. Sets the standard and should progress.
9-7Clifford LeeDavid Loughnanelocked2.5/14.5/180
36536507 Mutaany
Foaled April 26. Invincible Spirit colt. Brother to smart 6f winner Eqtidaar and half-brother to 3 winners, including 7f winners Massaat (very smart) and Mujbar (useful). Dam 2-y-o 6f winner. Yard 1-7 with 2-y-o newcomers this year.

Race 4 Haydock 14:40 Handicap (Class 4) 6f

365365341 Lethal Nymph
Winner of 6f novice events at Wolverhampton and Doncaster last month. Surely more to come and opening mark of 87 looks manageable.
9-11Adam KirbyClive Coxlocked0.83/10.73/112
365365186 Lethal Levi
Third win when seeing off 7 rivals in 6f Yarmouth handicap in April and good fourth of 12 in competitive Sky Bet Sunday Series handicap at Hamilton since. Cheekpieces worn in Scotland left off now. Likely to go well for in-form yard.
9-5Clifford LeeK R Burkelocked4.5/13.33/126
365365133 Melayu Kingdom
Thirsk debut scorer last spring who was fourth in a Ripon listed next time. Touch disappointing since but latest fifth of 15 in 5f handicap at York's Ebor meeting was a step back in the right direction and the return to 6f should suit.
9-9Kevin StottKevin Ryanlocked6.5/116/1146
365365157 Another Investment
Won York novice on final 2yo start. Unable to make a significant impact in 2 handicap starts this season but his mark is edging down.
9-4Jack MitchellNigel Tinklerlocked7.5/19/120
365365202 Amazonian Dream
Ended last summer on the up with a brace of 5f handicap wins. Yet to threaten this season but he didn't fare too badly when making late headway into mid-division in a big field at Ascot latest.
9-9Daniel MuscuttRod Millmanlocked11/110/19
365365145 Eternal Halo
Has failed to make an impact in 3 listed events since her York novice success last spring. A drop to handicap company provides her with a more realistic chance but it's hard to argue her mark looks generous.
9-7Sean LeveyKeith Dalgleishlocked18/120/111
365365414 Fly To Glory
Started his career with a pair of 6f Newcastle novice wins. Made an inauspicious start to his handicap career when last of 12 at Lingfield (6f, AW) last month but it's still early days. Makes turf debut here.
9-7Kieran ShoemarkArchie Watsonlocked18/128/156

Race 5 Haydock 15:10 Handicap (Class 4) 5f

365365188 Sound Reason
Third win when coming through in good style from off the pace to lead late on at Carlisle (5f) last August and shaped as if just needing the run after 8 months off when fourth at Hamilton earlier this month. One to bear in mind from this mark.
9-5Kevin StottKevin Ryanlocked3.5/11.62/154
3653656133 Sampers Seven
Scored twice for this yard in her 3-y-o campaign but she's clearly had her issues having not been seen for 20 months. This outing likely to reveal what ability remains.
9-8Adam KirbyMichael Applebylocked6/16.5/18
365365184 Miss Nay Never
Left first 2 runs of the year behind to gain fourth career success (all on AW) at Wolverhampton (5f) in March but failed to finish as well as she travelled back on turf at Hamilton recently. That tempers enthusiasm somewhat for this.
9-7Jason HartJohn Quinnlocked10/14.5/155
3653652042 Wrenthorpe
Nottingham specialist who ended last season with a creditable third at that venue, bumping into a couple of much less-exposed sorts. Has needed the run previously returning from a break so others make more appeal on this occasion.
9-8Gianluca SannaBryan Smartlocked12/114/117
3653652236 Never Dark
Landed a second 5f Musselburgh success of last season when seeing off 8 rivals in the mud in October but unable to land a blow in a much stronger race 4 days later at this course (6f). Worth a market check returning from 7 months off.
9-7Clifford LeeIain Jardinelocked12/15.5/154
3653651712 Street Life
Shaped as if better for the run after 7 months off when fourth at Wolverhampton earlier this month, fading final 50 yds. This a rare start on the turf nowadays but his latest effort back in September (over C&D) was a winning one. Interesting.
8-5Morgan ColePatrick Morrislocked16/19/144
3653659110 Hey Mr
Winless last season but ended the campaign with a pair of placed efforts at Nottingham (5f) from his easing mark. Likely first run for 4 months/yard debut was needed at Southwell in February (had breathing operation) and now operating from career-low mark.
8-12Lewis EdmundsLes Eyrelocked20/17/165
365365611 Duke Of Firenze
Veteran who ended last season with a bit of a whimper and made no impression on return at Catterick 6 days ago. Easy to look elsewhere.

Race 6 Haydock 15:40 Stakes (Class 4) 7f

365365261 Zanbaq
Created a very good impression when making winning debut in 14-runner novice at Kempton (7f) in November. Bettered that form when third in 1m Goodwood listed on her reappearance and will be very hard to beat with sights lowered.
9-5Dane O'NeillRoger Varianlocked0.22/10.3/136
365365204 Melody Cher
Stepped up on last summer's turf debut when third of 11 in 7f Wolverhampton novice 20 days ago. Capable of better again but a good chunk of improvement will likely be needed to see of Zanbaq.
8-13Cieren FallonSir Michael Stoutelocked3.75/14.5/120
365365106 Twilight Falls
Green and showed promise when third of 12 in maiden at Carlisle (7f, soft, 16/1) on debut 10 days ago but she was beaten 9 lengths and a good deal more will be required if she's to give the favourite something to think about.
8-13Clifford LeeMichael Dodslocked20/112/140
36536503 Glam Up
Showcasing half-sister to several winners, including smart 1¼m-1¾m winner Maid Up and 1m winner Rumpole. Decent pedigree but she'll need to be good to lower the colours of Zanbaq on debut.
8-13Kieran ShoemarkEd Walkerlocked22/120/19
365365102 Gala Bella
28/1, in need of experience when seventh of 12 in maiden at Leicester (5f, good to firm) on debut 10 days ago, merely passing beaten rivals. Significantly up in trip.
8-13Theodore LaddMichael Applebylocked100/1100/10
3653651005 Thewaytothestars
Only minor promise in AW runs over 7f and 1m for Ed Bethell at the start of the year. It's likely she's more one for handicaps after this.

Race 7 Haydock 16:15 Handicap (Class 5) 7f

365365201 Autumn Festival
Is on the upgrade, fending off a couple of fellow improvers when resuming winning ways at Beverley in April. Even better form in defeat when runner-up at Ripon subsequently (1m) and remains of firm interest.
9-9Adam KirbyDavid O'Mearalocked1.75/12.25/129
365365312 Emeralds Pride
Much improved after 7 months off when landing 14-runner maiden at Thirsk (6f, good, 14/1) 31 days ago, edging ahead final ½f from a next-time-out winner. Good chance if reproducing that back in handicap company.
9-8Clifford LeeMichael Dodslocked3.5/13.5/10
365365374 Above It All
Improved in first-time blinkers to get off the mark at Kempton in March and nearly followed up from 7 lb higher at Wolverhampton (7.2f). Can give another good account back on turf.
9-6Kieran ShoemarkEd Walkerlocked5/14.5/110
365365703 Tudor Queen
Fair maiden who was below form on AW debut after 5 months off when seventh of 12 in handicap at Southwell (6.1f) in March. Eased 2 lb and better expected now stepping back up to 7f on turf following a breathing operation.
9-7Kevin StottKevin Ryanlocked10/17.5/125
36536587 Geopolitic
Fair maiden who ran no more than respectably when fifth in 8-runner handicap at Kempton (1m) last week. More needed.
9-5Liam BrowneRichard Hannonlocked12/120/167
3653652055 Samuel Spade
Signs of ability in novice events and will hold more chance now handicapping.
9-6Daniel MuscuttDavid O'Mearalocked12/120/167
3653652058 Brunello Breeze
Modest form at best in a trio of novices but will have more chance now handicapping.
9-3Cieren FallonTom Tatelocked14/19/136
3653651229 Costa Adeje
Maiden who failed to beat a rival in first-time cheekpieces at Kempton (6f, 20/1) on latest outing in January. Easy enough to look elsewhere.
