AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 1 Haydock 13:50 Handicap (Class 4) 8f

432 Delorean
Another good placed effort when third in 7f Newcastle novice 7 weeks ago, likely to have finished a length or so closer but for being squeezed out by the first 2 late on. Makes handicap debut after a break and 1m should suit.
9-7Pat DobbsRalph Beckettlocked3/14.5/150
314 Let's Fly Again
Free-goer but improved to open account in 1m Bath handicap last month, keeping on well from two subsequent winners. Up 4 lb in deeper contest but could kick on now he's got his head in front.
9-6Adam KirbyClive Coxlocked3.5/17.5/1114
441 Nuvolari
Debut win at Epsom in September and some fair runs in 7f/1m handicaps this year, although left the impression he might not be too straightforward at Newmarket 7 weeks ago. Given a break and has hood fitted now.
9-10David ProbertEve Johnson locked5.5/14.5/118
853 My Mate Ted
Raced solely at Newbury thus far, touched off over 1m in the mud on debut last autumn. Goes handicapping after 12 weeks off and needs to improve.
9-7Jim CrowleyRoger Teallocked6/15.5/18
388 Nine Dragons
Took another step forward when front-running second in 5-runner 1m Bath maiden 5 weeks ago. Could progress further now handicapping.
9-2Silvestre De SousaTom Dascombelocked7/12.75/161
356 Forward Flight
Upped his game when making a successful return/handicap bow in 4-runner contest at Yarmouth (1m) in May but well beaten upped 2f in trip at Sandown next time, again racing freely. Hood goes on.
9-5Tom MarquandAlan Kinglocked10/116/160
309 Alvediston
Fair maiden, allowed his head in front when running well in third in 1m Newmarket handicap in June. Shaped as if amiss at Doncaster next time, though.
8-7Royston FfrenchJane Chapple-Hyamlocked16/118/113
225 Piffle
Dual winner over 6f/7f last year. Little impact in handicaps this year nearly 3 months apart but her mark has fallen again. First go at 1m.
9-5Saffie OsborneEd Walkerlocked16/133/1106
147 Yellow Bear
Off the mark in 1m Thirsk novice on return and better effort in handicaps since at Newcastle last time. Might need a bit more respite from the handicapper.
9-3Harrison ShawDeclan Carrolllocked20/112/140
4910 Brunello Breeze
Fair maiden, ran well over 7f here on return but never a threat over C&D 7 weeks ago. More needed.
8-6Graham LeeTom Tatelocked25/122/112
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 2 Haydock 14:25 Handicap (Class 2) 8f

353 Electrical Storm
Low-mileage 5-y-o who showed improved form to get off the mark on the back of an 18-month absence when scoring with a bit up his sleeve at York in June. Up 9 lb and matched that level when third upped to 10f at Sandown a month ago.
9-9Andrea AtzeniSaeed bin Suroorlocked2/11.62/119
514 Mr Mccann
Useful form for third win in what was a very productive juvenile campaign at Epsom in September. Didn't really relish step up to 10.3f but still ran well in the Dee Stakes on return. Failed to match that level twice since.
9-9Tom MarquandHugo Palmerlocked4.5/13.33/126
156 La Trinidad
Improved last term, winning back-to-back York handicaps during the summer. Has generally held his form since, a slowly-run race not helping his cause at that venue a fortnight ago. Cheekpieces on.
9-6Ben CurtisRoger Felllocked5.5/15/19
77 Dutch Decoy
Has looked ungenuine but doing little wrong at present, overcoming a pace bias to win successive races in July. Excellent fourth at Goodwood a week ago and likely to give it another good shot.
9-4Oliver StammersCharlie & Mark locked5.5/18/145
81 Young Fire
It's now fourteen runs since his last win in 2021 but he arrives in good nick, travelling with plenty of zest when eighth in a good-quality handicap at Goodwood last week. Eased 2 lb and this is easier.
10-0David ProbertDavid O'Mearalocked6.5/16/18
392 Fame And Acclaim
Ended a long losing run in 5-runner course handicap (1m) in June, sticking to the task. Brushed aside at Hamilton 19 days later.
9-10Lewis EdmundsLes Eyrelocked12/116/133
425 Gioia Cieca
Now 2 lb below his last winning mark but has given his running only once this season.
9-8Graham LeeKeith Dalgleishlocked25/140/160
There are 7 runners in this race.

Race 3 Haydock 15:00 Group 3 (Class 1) 10f

215 Grocer Jack
Dual Group 3 winner in Europe last year and it hasn't taken long for him to show himself capable of even better form for his new yard, blitzing his rivals from the front in Newbury listed over this triup last month. Will take a lot of stopping if in a similar mood.
9-7Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked1.25/11.38/110
281 Anmaat
Highly-progressive at 3 and improved again when making a successful reappearance in ultra-competitive John Smith's Cup Handicap at York last month, with Intellogent ¾ length back in third. Could be more to come from this low-mileage 4-y-o.
9-7Jim CrowleyOwen Burrowslocked5/12.75/145
368 Passion And Glory
Group 3 winner at Goodwood last summer and back to his best when making all in 1¼m Sandown listed 5 weeks ago, with the reopposing Foxes Tales back in fourth. No reason he won't give another good account.
9-7Louis StewardSaeed bin Suroorlocked7.5/19/120
286 Intellogent
Group 1 winner in France as a 3-y-o and new stable has coaxed him back to his best, running crackers under big weights in the Royal Hunt Cup and John Smith's Cup on his last 2 starts. ¾-length behind Anmaat in latter but meets him on 2 lb better terms now so there should be little between them.
9-7Adam KirbyJane Chapple-Hyamlocked7.5/110/133
6410 Royal Champion
Got his career firmly back on track after a gelding op when readily landing a 1¼m handicap at the Epsom Derby meeting. Will need another chunk of improvement now stepping back up in up class but his lightly-raced profile provides hope.
9-7Andrea AtzeniRoger Varianlocked10/116/160
439 Peter The Great
Reacted positively to blinkers when dominating small-field 1¼m handicaps at Chelmsford and Newmarket in June. Posted a smart effort at latter track but fair bit more will be needed again now stepping up to pattern company.
9-7Robert HavlinJohn & Thady locked12/116/133
364 Foxes Tales
Won this race 12 months ago but hasn't hit the same heights in 4 outings this year. Will need to get back to his very best if he's to go close to defending his crown.
9-7David ProbertAndrew Baldinglocked20/114/130
283 Certain Lad
Group 3 winner in 2020. Off 18 months, showed that he retains plenty of ability when second in Huxley at Chester but only mid-field in Wolferton at Royal Ascot and John Smith's Cup at York since. Others preferred.
9-7Ben CurtisMick Channonlocked28/125/111
352 Brentford Hope
Placed at Group 2/3 level in Europe last autumn. Ran well until his stamina gave out in 1½m Old Newton Cup here last month but likely to come up short in this company unless first-time cheekpieces spark improvement.
9-7Pat DobbsRichard Hugheslocked28/133/118
137 Marie's Diamond
Front-runner who showed he's still capable of smart form when second in 1m Pontefract listed 13 days ago but this is a stronger race and this extended 1¼m stretches his stamina in any case.
9-7Silvestre De SousaRoger Felllocked50/150/10
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 4 Haydock 15:35 Listed (Class 1) 8f

282 Don't Tell Claire
9-4Liam KeniryDaniel & Claire locked0
108 Oscula
Likeable sort who posted a career best when winning 15-runner Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood (7f) 10 days ago by head from Internationalangel, despite conceding first run. Just as effective over this longer trip. Player.
9-2Ben CurtisGeorge Bougheylocked1.5/12.25/150
509 Crenelle
Scored at Newmarket in April and she recorded an excellent third of 28 in Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot (8f) 50 days ago. Well in the mix with more to offer.
8-11Robert HavlinJohn & Thady locked3.5/12.5/129
2212 Thundershower
Fast improving filly who made it 2-3 in 1m minor event at Nottingham (10/11) 22 days ago. This represents her toughest test yet but she's not discounted with more progress on the cards.
8-11Martin HarleyJohn & Thady locked6.5/111/169
326 Rising Star
Landed Kensington Palace Handicap at Royal Ascot but below-par fourth of 8 to Thunder Beauty in listed race at Pontefract (8f) 32 days ago. Needs to get back on track.
9-4Andrea AtzeniMarco Bottilocked14/16.5/154
2210 Floral Splendour
11/4, overcame her inexperience to make a winning debut in 11-runner maiden here (7f, good) 22 days ago, forging clear. This demands a big step forward, though.
8-11Jim CrowleyJames Tatelocked14/116/114
431 Auria
Useful filly. 22/1, did too much too soon when only eighth of 9 to Poptronic in Hoppings Fillies' Stakes at Newcastle (10.2f) 43 days ago so she can't be ruled out.
9-4David ProbertAndrew Baldinglocked16/112/125
145 Random Harvest
Bagged 1m Ascot handicap in July and backed it up with good third of 10 in handicap there 14 days ago. Needs more in this grade, though.
9-4Saffie OsborneEd Walkerlocked16/111/131
283 Isola Rossa
Scored in 1m Lingfield handicap in May and not disgraced when sixth of 10 to Random Harvest in handicap at Ascot (8f) 28 days ago. This demands more, however.
9-4Pat DobbsJames Fanshawelocked25/122/112
2827 Sunset Bay
Useful filly but she's been off 9 months since only ninth of 12 in listed race (33/1) at Lingfield (8f, AW). Needs to hit the ground running.
9-4Tom MarquandEd Walkerlocked25/125/10
4511 Midheaven
Fairly useful filly who comes here on the back of creditable fifth of 12 to Oscula in 7f listed race at Carlisle 45 days ago. Has plenty on her plate in this company.
8-11Pierre-Louis JaminDavid O'Mearalocked40/150/125
There are 11 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 5 Haydock 16:10 Handicap (Class 5) 10f

172 Playday
Frankel filly who seemed to relish the return to front-running tactics when making all at Leicester (10f) 17 days ago, drawing clear 1f out and only closed down late on. Rates a player with a repeat.
9-8Jim CrowleyRalph Beckettlocked3.5/13.5/10
167 Tessy Lad
Improved in line with the longer trip of late, runner-up at Ffos Las prior to getting off the mark at Newbury (1¼m) 16 days ago, making all. Bit more on his plate up 4 lb but he may not have finished improving yet.
9-3Pat DobbsRichard Hugheslocked3.5/12.5/129
443 Benjamin Bear
Low-mileage gelding who showed improved form when scoring narrowly at Leicester (10f) in June, doing well to hold on having taken time to settle. 3 lb higher now but quite possible he hasn't yet reached his limit.
9-7Martin HarleyAlan Kinglocked5.5/15.5/10
524 Glittering Choice
Showed much-improved form when staying on strongly for second at Leicester (8.2f) in June and whilst she failed to build on that at Hamilton 2 weeks later it would come as no surprise to see a better showing having been given a break since.
9-6Tom MarquandHugo Palmerlocked5.5/15.5/10
308 Fergie Time
Got off the mark at Musselburgh (1m) in May and has continued in form, respectable third of 8 in handicap at Carlisle (9f, good to firm) 30 days ago, keeping on. Should give another good account.
9-2Graham LeeKeith Dalgleishlocked5.5/14/127
125 Samuel Spade
Minor promise in trio of novice events as a 2-y-o and stepped up on those efforts when runner-up on return/handicap debut here (7f) in May. Not yet matched that in 2 subsequent outings but he arrives with yard in good order. Up in trip.
9-5Adam KirbyDavid O'Mearalocked14/118/129
391 Come On John
Matched previous best when opening account over 1m at Thirsk in April. Recent efforts not so inspiring though, racing indolently and never a threat when last of 7 at Hamilton (8.3f) in June.
9-9Ben CurtisRoger Felllocked16/114/113
39 Waba Daba Do
Showed some promise in novice/maiden company during the spring but she arrives here with something to prove having pulled up at Beverley (lost action) and ran no sort of race when last of 10 at Newcastle (7f) 3 days ago.
9-1Harrison ShawMichael & David locked40/166/165
There are 8 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 6 Haydock 16:40 Handicap (Class 3) 7f

582 Whitebeam
Built on a promising debut when running out an impressive winner of a 7f Newbury novice in May. Didn't need to improve to defy a penalty back there a month later and appeals as the type to go on improving on handicap debut.
9-6David ProbertHarry & Roger locked1.75/11.75/10
373 Thunder Legend
Maiden winner for Hugo Palmer at 2 and knocking on the door all 4 starts in handicaps for new yard this season. First-time tongue strap now added to the cheekpieces he wore last time. Sure to be thereabouts.
8-13Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked1.88/12.25/120
354 Zero Carbon
Bred to be useful and quickly going the right way, finding further progress to complete the hat-trick over C&D 35 days ago, finding extra when joined final 100 yds. Seen to good effect then but he's still one to be positive about.
8-12Pat DobbsRichard Hugheslocked3.5/14/114
155 Liamarty Dreams
C&D winner in May and back on the scoresheet when running out a ready winner at Chester (7.6f) last month. Not quite in the same form at York last time, so bounce back needed.
8-10Pierre-Louis JaminK R Burkelocked7/15.5/121
641 Eldrickjones
Useful performer who looks too high in the weights judged on his first 2 starts in handicaps. Has been gelded since his last run.
9-9Ben CurtisRoger Felllocked18/116/111
There are 5 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 7 Haydock 17:15 Handicap (Class 5) 7f

845 Star Zinc
Consistent rather than progressive but he did shape encouragingly when fourth on handicap debut (4/1) at Doncaster (7f) back in May, nearest finish after slowly away. Gelded since and the hood goes back on today.
9-9Andrea AtzeniCharlie Felloweslocked2.25/12.5/111
167 Above It All
Has taken his form up a level since being fitted with blinkers, opening his account on the turf over C&D in May and posting solid efforts in defeat since. Latest effort worth marking up a shade (was messed about at the start) and he should remain competitive.
9-3Tom MarquandEd Walkerlocked3.5/14.5/129
74 Dark Swansong
Showed further improvement fitted with first-time cheekpieces when runner-up at Chepstow on penultimate start and he was unlucky not to finish a shade closer on polytrack debut at Lingfield last week, hampered over 2f out. Blinkers now tried and he's fancied to go close.
9-11Adam KirbyClive Coxlocked4/13.33/117
212 Verreaux Eagle
Dual winner at up to 7f on turf/AW as a 3-y-o who twice went close in 7f handicaps during the spring. Stamina possibly stretched over 7.6f trip at Chester last time (found less than looked likely) and she may well have a major say in this.
10-1Ben CurtisEd Dunloplocked6/14/133
176 Liangel Hope
Opened his account at Redcar in April and largely in good form since, capitalising on the drop in grade when cosily scoring at Catterick 17 days ago. Has left David O'Meara since and no surprise to see him involved back in handicap company.
9-6Mollie PhillipsChristopher Masonlocked8.5/110/118
