AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 1 Haydock 13:00 Handicap (Class 5) 5f

365365285 Lotus Rose
Confirmed more positive signs from Ripon in May when recording second career success at Redcar (5f) 4 weeks ago, making all on favoured far side. Higher mark demands more but that form has been boosted subsequently.
9-8Jonny PeateRoger Felllocked3/14.5/150
365365136 So Smart
Much better signs for new yard with the headgear discarded, again finding only one too good at Redcar (5f) on his latest outing 2 weeks ago. No reason why he won't go well again.
9-7William PyleDavid Evanslocked3.33/12.25/132
365365214 May Blossom
Had a busy 2021, scoring twice, and she arrives somewhere near the top of her game, keeping on to finish close-up fourth in a C&D handicap 3 weeks ago. Should give another good account from 1 lb lower mark again fitted with a visor.
9-8Mark WinnDavid O'Mearalocked6.5/18.5/131
365365213 Not On Your Nellie
Merely ticking over so far this campaign, again not disgraced when fourth in a C&D handicap on her latest outing 3 weeks ago. Handicapper is steadily relinquishing his grip though and she's no forlorn hope now eased in class. Cheekpieces go on.
9-9Sophie ClementsNigel Tinklerlocked8.5/111/129
365365211 First Company
Made most of good opportunity (in first-time blinkers) when landing small-field Ayr novice (5f) last summer but failed to build on that back in stronger company thereafter. Creditable third on return at Thirsk but disappointing over C&D since.
10-4Paige HopperDeclan Carrolllocked10/16.5/135
365365172 Van Gerwen
Eased in weights and duly capitalised to land ninth career success at Nottingham (5f) 17 days ago, leading over 1f out and driven out. Rider's claim off-sets weight rise and claims once more.
9-12Brandon WilkiePaul Midgleylocked11/118/164
3653651610 Boudica Bay
C&D winner last summer who had eased in weights and duly capitalised to score at Redcar (5f) in May. Not disgraced when fourth at Thirsk (5f) since and she's another with each-way possibilities.
9-2Gianluca SannaEric Alstonlocked11/114/127
365365207 Holbache
C&D winner who registered pair of small-field victories at up to 6f last season. Made a bold bid from the front when second at Goodwood (6f) 4 weeks ago and far from disgraced when fifth at Chepstow (6f) since. Each-way possibilities.
9-6Emma TaffTony Carrolllocked12/17/142
365365298 Evasive Power
Losing run is beginning to mount up and hasn't looked like halting the slide in AW handicaps of late, never dangerous when tenth of 13 in handicap at Kempton (7f, 66/1) 29 days ago. Return to turf needs to have positive effect now.
9-6Morgan ColeRobyn Brislandlocked14/128/1100
365365269 Dawson Lane
Mayson filly who has showed some promise in trio of maiden/novice events, fourth of 6 at Doncaster (5f, good to firm) 26 days ago, not knocked about. Type to do better now handicapping and interesting what the market makes of her.
9-2Aiden BrookesJulie Camacholocked14/112/114
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 2 Haydock 13:30 Handicap (Class 5) 12f

36536578 Storm Chaser
Capitalised on a falling mark by a margin more akin to a winter staying chaser at Nottingham (14f, good) last week, having benefit of enterprising ride. Escapes a penalty, so has obvious claims if turning up in similar form.
8-11Silvestre De SousaMick Channonlocked1.75/10.91/148
365365237 Iconique
Yarmouth handicap winner in October and matched that level when second of 7 in handicap at Salisbury (12f, good to firm) 23 days ago, albeit having the run of the race. Should give another good account.
9-2James DoyleCharlie Felloweslocked7.5/14/147
365365193 Arctic Fox
Three-time winner for Richard Fahey back in 2019 who knocked on the door in staying handicaps on turf for present stable last summer. Respectable efforts both starts back this season, including in first-time cheekpieces last time, and should remain competitive.
9-8David NolanMartin Todhunterlocked8/110/125
365365154 Can Can Girl
Better than ever when successful at Beverley in April. Rare poor effort at Musselburgh next time but was soon back to form when third at Ripon (12f) 15 days ago.
9-7Kevin StottDavid Brownlocked11/116/145
3653656155 East End Girl
Made a successful handicap debut at Chepstow in 2020 and held her form well next 4 outings. Has a 20-month absence to overcome but returns on a workable mark and would need taking seriously if strong in the betting.
9-4Connor BeasleyLucy Wadhamlocked12/111/18
365365229 Lucky Draw
Ran up to best when beaten only by an improved stable-switcher at Kempton in May. Not quite in same form back there last time and 2 lb out of the weights now back on turf.
8-4Laura CoughlanEd de Gileslocked14/14.5/168
There are 6 runners in this race.

Race 3 Haydock 14:00 Handicap (Class 5) 12f

365365262 Hilts
Improving sort who, after notching wins at Redcar and Musselburgh, ran no sort of race for whatever reason in his hat-trick bid at Doncaster earlier this month. Drops back in trip here and it's much too soon to be forgetting about the impression he'd been creating.
9-7Jack GarrittyJedd O'Keeffelocked2.5/12/120
3653652126 Tuddenham Green
Heading in the right direction last year, fourth of 11 in maiden at Lingfield when last seen 7 months ago. One to be interested in now upped in trip for this handicap debut.
9-3James DoyleAlan Kinglocked4/16/150
365365287 Echo Chamber
Showed improved form to get off the mark on handicap debut at Leicester 4 weeks ago, seen to maximum effect from the front. Likely to improve again and 3 lb claimer offsets a subsequent rise in the weights.
9-2Laura PearsonRalph Beckettlocked4.5/18.5/189
365365101 Sharp Combo
Off the mark at the second attempt in a Wolverhampton maiden last term and stepped up markedly from reappearance when runner-up at Windsor 10 days ago, pulling well clear of the remainder. Every chance of going one better upped in trip from the same mark here.
9-11Joe FanningCharlie & Mark locked5/112/1140
365365498 Soulcombe
Well-bred son of Frankel who hasn't looked much so far and was off the bridle disconcertingly far from home on his latest start at Newmarket 7 weeks ago. Blinkers applied/gelded ahead of this handicap debut and he should be able to make more of an impact in this company.
9-2Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked5.5/13.33/139
365365179 Codswallop
Showed much improved form to get off the mark after 8 weeks off at Nottingham (well-backed 11/1,10.2f) 17 days ago, taking a while to master the front runner. Up against some unexposed types from top yards here so may find things tougher.
8-13Sean KirraneAdam Westlocked11/110/19
365365295 Mr Moonstorm
Just glimpses of promise in 3 relatively quick runs and he's another that may do better now venturing down the handicap route.
9-4David AllanTim Easterbylocked22/122/10
3653652810 Go Beyond
Went close making her handicap debut when runner-up on penultimate start over C&D early last month and backed that up when 1½ lengths fifth of 6 to Echo Chamber in handicap (8/1) at Leicester (11.8f) 4 weeks ago. More needed to open her account here, though.
8-10Tyler HeardAdrian Wintlelocked25/17/172

Race 4 Haydock 14:30 Stakes (Class 4) 7f

365365221 Captain Winters
Foaled March 22. Lope De Vega colt. Closely related to very smart winner up to 1m Cape Byron and half-brother to several winners. Dam 8.6f-10.4f winner. Fourth of 8 in novice event at this course (6f) on debut, met some trouble. Sure to benefit from that considerate introduction.
9-7Andrea AtzeniKevin Ryanlocked3/12.25/125
3653652210 Nights Over Egypt
40,000 gns foal, 140,000 gns yearling, Oasis Dream colt. Dam, ran twice at 2 yrs, half-sister to smart winner up to 8.6f Dream Lodge, out of unraced daughter of 1000 Guineas winner Sleepytime. Green when fourth of 8 in novice event at this C&D on debut 22 days ago. Should have more to offer.
9-7P J McDonaldJames Hortonlocked4.5/15.5/122
36536502 Desert Hero
Foaled January 29. Sea The Stars colt. Dam unraced half-sister to high-class 1½m winner Manatee out of smart 9.5f/1¼m winner Galatee. Yard 1-4 with 2-y-o newcomers this year.
9-7Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked6.5/14/138
365365209 New Endeavour
€68,000 foal, €200,000 yearling, New Bay colt. Brother to 1¼m winner Johnny Boom. Dam unraced half-sister to useful 2-y-o 7f winner Luminous Eyes. 12/1, sixth of 7 in maiden at Sandown (7f, good) on debut. Showed a lot of knee action so may well need softer ground to be seen to advantage.
9-7David EganRoger Varianlocked8/12.75/166
365365198 Moltisanti
€14,000 yearling, Highland Reel colt. Half-brother to 7f-1¼m winner Malmas and smart 1½m-15f winner Haky. Dam once-raced half-sister to smart winner up to 12.5f Whortleberry. 9/2, green when fourth of 11 in maiden at Leicester (7f, good to firm) on debut 19 days ago. Open to progress.
9-7Ben CurtisDavid Loughnanelocked10/110/10
36536503 Edmund Ironside
Foaled March 15. 82,000 gns yearling, Saxon Warrior colt. Half-brother to 3 winners, including 2-y-o 5f winner Lincoln Blue and 2-y-o 5.5f winner My Drama Queen. Dam unraced sister to useful 2-y-o 5f winner Madame Trop Vite. Yard 5-37 with 2-y-o newcomers this year.
9-7Sam JamesK R Burkelocked20/112/140
365365012 Return Of The King
Foaled February 29. 11,000 gns foal, Time Test colt. Dam third at 6f at 2 yrs from 2 starts. Yard 2-32 with 2-y-o newcomers this year.
9-7Kevin StottKevin Ryanlocked25/125/10
36536506 Hawkes Bay
Foaled April 11. Fountain of Youth gelding. Brother to winner abroad and half-brother to several winners, including winner up to 7f Mezmaar and 1½m winner The Bells O Peover, both useful. Dam 2-y-o 6f/7f winner who stayed 10.4f. Yard 0-5 with 2-y-o newcomers this year.
9-7Robert HavlinAdam Westlocked66/166/10
365365167 Jinxster
Twilight Son colt. Dam, won both starts in bumpers, half-sister to 2-y-o 6f winner Miss Elizabeth. 33/1, ninth of 10 in novice event at Beverley (7.4f, good to firm) on debut 16 days ago.

Race 5 Haydock 15:00 Handicap (Class 3) 7f

365365192 Thunder Legend
Improved to get off the mark in good style in 8.3f maiden at Hamilton in August. Has made the frame on all 3 starts for his new yard (latest when runner-up at Chester 19 days ago) and he's fancied to be bang there once again with first-time headgear enlisted.
9-3Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked2.5/12/120
365365474 Haymaker
Placed first 3 starts last year but failed to live up to market expectations on handicap debut on final 2-y-o start. Made amends when making a winning return at Newmarket early last month but he looked a hard ride in his follow-up bid 13 days later so probably best watched for now.
9-0James DoyleHughie Morrisonlocked4.5/14.5/10
365365393 Beluga Gold
Consistent type who built on April's 7f Catterick novice success when only narrowly denied in 6f Hamilton handicap last month. Not disgraced in a big-field handicap at York (6f) just under 6 weeks ago and another bold showing anticipated stepped back up in trip.
9-1Jason HartJohn Quinnlocked4.5/13.5/122
365365131 Espressoo
Progressive this term, winning Ayr maiden and Chelmsford handicap (both 7f). Another step forward when head second at York (7f again) next time but she was unable to land a blow in Sandringham Stakes at Royal Ascot (1m) 13 days ago.
9-9Joe FanningCharlie & Mark locked5/15/10
365365295 Skittlebombz
Opened his account at Southwell in December and has improved in each of his 3 outings this term, latest when runner-up at Kempton earlier this month. No reason why he shouldn't continue to give a good account and first-time cheekpieces go on.
9-0P J McDonaldHugo Palmerlocked5.5/19/164
365365207 Liamarty Dreams
Proved better than ever when winning 9-runner handicap at this track in May and not beaten far when seventh at Sandown since, plugging on inside final 1f. Others look to have stronger credentials in this, though.
8-10Clifford LeeK R Burkelocked8.5/110/118
365365168 Monsieur Jumbo
Opened his account at Newcastle in March and ran to a similar level on his next 3 starts. However he ran poorly in first-time cheekpieces at Beverley just over a fortnight ago (typically looking less than straightforward) so will need to keep his quirks in check to feature here.
8-9Tom EavesKevin Ryanlocked18/125/139
There are 7 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 6 Haydock 15:30 Handicap (Class 4) 7f

365365375 Substantial
Promising sort who, on the back of being gelded, showed improved form to score on return/handicap debut at Kempton (7f) last month, winning readily. Took a sideways step at Newcastle since (pulled hard) but he's well worth another chance back on turf.
9-8Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked2.5/13.5/140
365365228 Aristobulus
Dual scorer at 2 who has progressed again in defeat this time around, runner-up on return at Nottingham (6f) prior to a close-up fourth in a C&D event 2 weeks ago. Remains low-mileage and worth considering.
9-4James DoyleJames Fergusonlocked3.5/13.5/10
365365284 Lost In Time
Dubawi gelding who has been lightly raced in recent seasons yet, like many from this yard, he ran well returning from a break when second at Leicester (8.2f) 4 weeks ago. Claims if backing that up here returned to 7f. Cheekpieces go on.
9-10Andrea AtzeniSaeed bin Suroorlocked4.5/15/111
365365281 Cold Stare
Registered pair of soft ground victories at up to 7f last year (including here). Generally shaped up well in defeat so far this season but he could do with the ground easing plenty to be seen at his best here. Cheekpieces back on.
10-2David NolanDavid O'Mearalocked5.5/111/1100
36536512 Gweedore
Successful 4 times last season and picked up where he left off to go in again at Musselburgh (7f) in April. Similar form on 2 of his 3 starts since and he's operating from last winning mark again now. Engaged 3.15 Musselburgh Wednesday.
10-0Jason HartKatie Scottlocked8.5/13.5/159
365365333 Wobwobwob
Bright start from his reduced mark this spring, staying on gradually when eighth of 22 at York (6f) in May. Not in same form when fourth at Beverley (7.4f) but certainly not handicapped out of things if putting it all together.
10-0Ryan SextonAdrian Paul locked9/19/10
365365129 Buckshaw Village
Maiden who returned to form when second in 8-runner handicap at Hamilton (6f) earlier this month. Similar form despite challenging from further back than ideal when fourth at Ayr (7.2f) 12 days ago and he may yet have more to come at this trip.
8-8Cam HardieRichard Faheylocked14/118/129
365365657 Palifico
Maiden who ran well to fill runner-up spot on all 4 starts for Jane Chapple-Hyam earlier this year, latterly at Yarmouth (6f) in April. Steps back up in trip for yard debut now.
9-6Barry McHughPatrick Morrislocked22/166/1200
365365206 Ugo Gregory
Back-to-back winner of handicaps at Beverley/York last autumn and best effort of present campaign when third at first-named venue in May (Wobwobwob placed fourth). Did too much too soon at York since but his mark is easing all the time.
9-7David AllanTim Easterbylocked25/116/136

Race 7 Haydock 16:00 Handicap (Class 3) 10f

365365252 Knight Of Honour
Progressive colt who got off the mark in 7-runner maiden at Goodwood (9.9f, good) 25 days ago by 2¼ lengths from Broadspear, soon clear. Makes handicap debut and open to further improvement.
9-7Robert HavlinJohn & Thady locked1.75/11.62/17
3653651171 Secret Image
Opened account on second start at Goodwood and matched that form when placed next 2 starts, including in minor at Meydan on return. Next start in listed race there was too bad to be true so worth another chance back on turf. Off 117 days. Hood back on. Makes handicap debut.
9-9James DoyleCharlie Applebylocked3.5/19/1157
365365254 Broadspear
Lightly-raced maiden. 15/8, creditable 2¼ lengths second of 7 to Knight of Honour in maiden at Goodwood (9.9f, good) 25 days ago, no match for winner. 5 lb better off with the winner now ahead of handicap debut and remains with potential.
9-2David EganRoger Varianlocked5/14/120
365365195 Hamaki
Back-to-back winner last summer, opening his account in a 6f Pontefract maiden before striking on nursery debut at Sandown (7f). Resumed progress when third in 9f handicap at Sandown on return, likely to have finished second with a clear run. This trip should suit and likely to go well again.
9-2Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked5.5/13.33/139
365365213 Paradias
Improved in handicaps this season and benefitted from an enterprising ride at Yarmouth 3 weeks ago. Respected.
9-4Liam KeniryAlan Kinglocked7/17.5/17
365365336 Noonie
Showed much improved form on first outing since leaving Mark Johnston when second at Beverley on handicap bow/return, just failing. Backed that up when runner-up upped in trip there last month but this tougher.
8-10P J McDonaldEdward Bethelllocked20/114/130
There are 6 runners in this race.
