Race 1 Haydock 15:45 Handicap (Class 4) 5f

124 Kimngrace
Well backed and improved when landing 6f apprentice fillies' handicap at Goodwood in June and followed that up with a fine second over C&D, splitting next-time-out winners. Not seen to best effect at Goodwood last time and remains one to be positive about back at this track (won here at 2 yrs).
9-8Deon Le RouxRichard Hugheslocked3.5/15.5/157
101 Silky Wilkie
Has gone from strength to strength this season, winning C&D and Hamilton handicaps (latter under this rider) before a fine run up in class at Goodwood. Plenty going for him.
9-10Sam FeildenK R Burkelocked4.5/13.2/129
83 Fast Response
Won 3 times last season and back to form when second at Thirsk last week, likely to have pushed winner closer but for being hampered. Got to be respected on the back of that.
9-8William PyleK R Burkelocked5.5/16.5/118
611 Glorious Rio
Comfortably capitalised on a falling mark in lady riders' handicap at Carlisle on Monday, starting better and keeping on well. Got a hat-trick up once he found his form last summer but this is undoubtedly tougher.
8-95exJonny PeateStella Barclaylocked6.5/17.5/115
95 Show Me Show Me
Dual winner over this trip last summer and back to form with placed efforts off this mark the last twice. Wouldn't dismiss.
9-7Aiden BrookesRichard Faheylocked11/18/127
36 The Thin Blue Line
Been running consistently well having won twice earlier in the year, not seen to best effect in messy race at Doncaster on Thursday.
9-7Brandon WilkieKeith Dalgleishlocked11/16/145
138 Yimou
May have needed recent Windsor appearance after 3 months off and while he's on a long losing run his mark reflects that. Not without interest for yard going well (the clear pick of their 2 runners).
9-4Christian HowarthDean Ivorylocked16/112/125
3014 Street Life
Got a hat-trick up last summer, including an 80/1 C&D success under this rider. Ran well at Chester last time but this is much tougher.
8-5Morgan ColePatrick Morrislocked16/120/125
262 Jack The Truth
Right back on his game when landing 5f Bath handicap in July but poor back there under a penalty next time and this is tougher still.
9-10Connor PlanasGeorge Scottlocked20/122/110
397 Modular Magic
Front runner who won 2 5f handicaps last year but well beaten twice at Musselburgh after a promising comeback at Thirsk this term, said to have bled last time. Bit to prove now.
9-7Jamie PowellDavid & Nicola locked22/125/114
3113 Harrogate
Struck again at Ripon in May but held in class 5 events the last twice and hard to see him winning this.
8-5Mark WinnPaul Midgleylocked33/133/10
2212 Boudica Bay
Dual C&D winner (including under this rider in June) but slowly away and never involved here 3 weeks ago. Others preferred.
8-5Gianluca SannaEric Alstonlocked33/122/133
610 Charming Kid
Not unbacked and showed the benefit of wind op when landing Wolverhampton handicap off career-low mark last month. Poor run at Windsor on Monday though and a long time since he has shone on turf. Hard to fancy.

Race 3 Haydock 16:45 Handicap (Class 4) 6f

2313 Rambuso Creek
Winning handicap debut at Thirsk (5f, good to firm) in June and has run 2 good races in defeat since, going down only narrowly at Pontefract (5f, good) last time. Lightly raced enough to think his best days are still ahead of him. High on the shortlist.
9-7Kevin StottKevin Ryanlocked4.5/15.5/122
5710 Ballyare
Hold-up sprinter who got off the mark for the campaign when seeing off 10 rivals at Chester (6f, good to firm) 8 weeks ago. 3 lb rise fair and he'll be running on at the finish if the leaders go too quick.
9-9Oisin OrrLucinda Russelllocked7.5/116/1113
503 Mister Bluebird
Successful at Ascot (6f) and Musselburgh (7f) this summer. Raced alone towards the far rail when fourth of 8 at Newmarket last time and treated as if still in form. Respectable sixth of 21 at York in the second leg of this series. Hollie Doyle takes the ride.
9-12Hollie DoyleHeather Mainlocked8/14.5/144
168 Good Earth
Has thrived of late, winning 3 6f handicaps since May. Another good effort when second of 15 at York (6f, good to firm) 16 days ago. Can make presence felt again.
9-10Tom EavesMichael Herringtonlocked9/17.5/117
132 A Sure Welcome
Has done well at Windsor this year, winning in June and even better form when runner-up there (6f, good to firm) 13 days ago. This is a more competitive race, though.
9-12Georgia DobieJohn Spearinglocked12/125/1108
3115 Showtime Mahomes
Won a big-field handicap at York (6f, good) in the second leg of this series. He's been well below that level in 2 subsequent outings but the York form is strong (race threw up several winners) and he could bounce back with a bang for last year's winning stable.
9-5Sam JamesGrant Tuerlocked12/19/125
2017 Jordan Electrics
Prominent racer who was a ready winner at Hamilton (6f) in June. Good second of 20 to reopposing Good Earth at York next time but he was down the field at Ayr last time.
9-4Rowan ScottEwan Whillanslocked14/114/10
187 Russco
Racked up a 5-timer last summer. Has run well when twice reaching the frame here this summer and perhaps just didn't take to cheekpieces (quickly discarded) when running poorly on AW last time. Not discounted.
9-11Paul MulrennanDonald McCainlocked14/110/129
816 Surprise Picture
Got his head back in front in a 6f Hamilton handicap 8 days ago. Only nudged up 2 lb for that narrow success and he won off a higher mark last year. Another who can't be discounted.
9-5Billy GarrittyKeith Dalgleishlocked14/111/121
85 Tipperary Tiger
Got his head back in front at Hamilton in June. Has performed well in defeat on all 3 outings since but the handicapper would appear to have him about right for now.
9-11Clifford LeeK R Burkelocked16/19/144
114 Toussarok
Proved at least as good as ever to record a second win of the season at Epsom (6f, good to firm) last month. Raced closer to the pace than ideal when sixth of 18 at Goodwood 11 days ago (likely still in good form).
9-11Franny NortonCharlie & Mark locked18/120/111
911 Devil's Angel
Added to his tally when leading close home at Sandown (5f, good to firm) in June. Not in the same form when fifth of 6 at Newmarket 9 days ago. Often starts slowly.
9-8Callum ShepherdJedd O'Keeffelocked18/150/1178
3714 Abu Malek
Taking debut 6f scorer (soft) at Doncaster for Richard Fahey in May 2021. Also went close at the same venue on his return for new trainer 12 months later. Raced on the unfavoured part of the track when down the field on his C&D handicap debut. Retains potential.
9-7Jack MitchellKevin Philippart locked18/111/139
1412 Desert Doctor
Made frame twice at Meydan over the winter but has been operating below his best since returning to the UK, albeit latest Chelmsford sixth was a bit better. Has a lower turf mark and Tom Marquand is in the saddle but he has too much to prove.
9-7Tom MarquandEd Walkerlocked20/122/110
386 Cold Stare
C&D winner. This year's efforts have been no more than respectable but he is starting to look well handicapped. His last 5 wins have come on soft/heavy and he would enter the reckoning if rain arrives.
9-11Daniel TudhopeDavid O'Mearalocked22/120/19
339 Asadjumeirah
Won twice on AW at the start of the year and struck again at Thirsk (6f, good) in April. Not in the same sort of form on his last 3 starts but he has dropped back to a handy mark as a result. No surprise were he to revive after a short break.
9-10Cam HardieAntony Brittainlocked25/128/112
431 Seven Brothers
Successful on 6f Doncaster reappearance in March. Ran to form there next time but he's failed to beat a rival in his 2 outings since. First for new yard here having left Kevin Ryan.
9-12Jonathan FisherScott Dixonlocked33/150/152

Race 4 Haydock 17:15 Handicap (Class 4) 10f

4610 American Flag
Definite promise in trio of novice/maiden events that have worked out well, shaping as if a stronger gallop would suit ideally when third behind Asaassi at Salisbury (9.9f) in June. Gelded since and definitely more to come now handicapping.
9-0Tom MarquandEd Walkerlocked3/15.5/183
416 Award Dancer
Fair form in 4 starts on AW in Ireland, and (gelded) he showed improved form to make a winning yard debut at Newcastle (1m) in October. Improved further to score readily on return at Musselburgh (1m) in June and he's interesting again in hat-trick bid.
9-4Sam JamesGrant Tuerlocked5.5/13/145
99 Rich King
3-y-o who came out on top in a strong race for the grade over C&D in May, edging ahead close home. Had excuses when fourth at Southwell (11f) 9 days ago, left with too much to do/raced on inner, and he remains one to be interested in. Big player.
9-0Kevin StottEdward Bethelllocked6/15.5/18
152 Miramichi
Racked up a 4-timer last summer (two coming over C&D) and ended campaign with a good fourth in a Sky Bet Series race over C&D in September. Been performing with credit of late, no match for a 3-y-o at Newmarket (10f) 2 weeks ago, but he remains on a workable mark.
9-11Pierre-Louis JaminTom Dascombelocked7/16.5/17
244 Solar Joe
Low-mileage 4-y-o who showed benefit of reappearance run at York when coming home best off a strong gallop to score by 5 lengths at Pontefract (1m) in July. Creditable second at Hamilton (9f) has followed and he looks worthy of a step up to 1¼m now.
9-7Oisin OrrRichard Faheylocked7/17.5/17
1112 Forgivable
Reached a fair level in 4 starts as a juvenile and improved again this campaign, confirming promise of Pontefract third in June when off the mark in game style at Redcar (10f) 11 days ago. Promises to do better still at this sort of trip.
8-11David AllanTim Easterbylocked7.5/17/17
115 Luminous Light
Goodwood novice winner at 2 yrs who ran best race to date granted the run of things when third at Ripon (9.7f) 2 starts back. Faded out of things in a class 2 handicap (12f) at first-named venue 11 days ago and this rates more suitable.
9-4Franny NortonCharlie & Mark locked14/116/114
47 Jewel Maker
Got off the mark for the season at Carlisle (9f) in July and, having disappointed here next time, he was quickly back to form when just failing to get up at Pontefract (1m) 4 days ago. Not discounted back up in trip.
9-2Sean KirraneTim Easterbylocked18/118/10
303 Sucellus
Goes well at this track, making it 3 wins from 4 attempts with a clear-cut success over 1m in June. Isn't one for maximum faith, as his exploits at Doncaster/Ascot either side indicate, but a return to this venue a likely plus at least. Back up in trip.
9-10Daniel TudhopeOliver Greenall & locked22/125/114
518 Lady Caroline
Chester novice winner (7f) as a juvenile who has yet to kick on in pair of handicaps so far this campaign, never a threat when last of 7 at Redcar (1m) in June. Short break/step up in trip needs to have positive effect now.
9-0Ben CurtisHugo Palmerlocked25/122/112
1111 Bringitonboris
Had a good spell on AW during the winter, winning twice but he's essentially just been ticking over on turf of late, 4½ lengths fourth behind re-opposing Forgivable at Redcar (10f) 11 days ago. Yet to win beyond 1m. Engaged 6.45 Ayr Saturday.
8-11Ben RobinsonKeith Dalgleishlocked25/133/132
261 Anythingtoday
Successful twice upon joining George Boughey last summer and went close a couple of times for that yard at around 10f during the spring. Not at best on last 2 starts but a switch back to his previous stable may perk him up from sliding mark.
9-12Jonny PeateRoger Felllocked25/125/10

Race 5 Haydock 17:45 Handicap (Class 4) 7f

77 Have Secret
Shaped well in novices and showed much improved form switched to a nursery when runner-up at Chester last week, closing all the way to the line having again been held back by another slow start. Major player if breaking on terms.
8-11Tony HamiltonRichard Faheylocked3/16/1100
102 Indian Dream
Promise in a pair of novice events in the spring before opening his account after a 7-week break at Epsom (7f) 10 days ago, going about things in a more professional manner having been gelded in the interim. Opening mark looks fair and there's potential for better to come.
9-8David EganMichael Belllocked4.5/12.5/144
165 Nap Hand
Fast Company colt who attracted support and overcame inexperience to make a winning debut at Salisbury in June, coming from furthest back. Fitted with a hood but found out by a sharper 6f at Newmarket since and with the headgear discarded, he remains with potential now handicapping.
9-5Hollie DoyleAlan Kinglocked7/14.5/136
163 Urban Sprawl
Took his form up a notch when making a winning start in nurseries at Catterick last month and similar form upped in grade when runner-up at Thirsk next time (third won earlier this week), having the run of the race. Could prove tough to peg back if able to dictate matters.
9-6Ben CurtisCharlie & Mark locked7/17/10
59 Princess Naomi
Made a winning start in nurseries at Chelmsford last month and followed up at Beverley 9 days later (strong form, 4 of those behind successful next time). Hat-trick bid excused given the run of the race at Kempton on Tuesday but this quick turnaround tempers enthusiasm.
8-2Tyler HeardRod Millmanlocked8/114/175
224 There's The Door
Getting the hang of things now, taking a big step forward to get off the mark over C&D last month, seeing things out thoroughly to lead in the dying strides. Worthy of a market check as she now moves into handicaps.
9-5Phil DennisDavid Evanslocked9/18/111
376 Disputed
Suited by the step back up in trip to get off the mark at the third attempt over C&D last month, scoring decisively despite still looking very green once out in front. She can be competitive from this opening handicap mark.
9-3Oisin OrrAdrian Paul locked12/112/10
128 Fomo
Suited by the switch to front-running tactics to open her account in a Musselburgh maiden last month and posted a solid effort back in a nursery at Beverley a week later. Others look more obvious.
8-5Franny NortonGemma Tuttylocked12/118/150
101 Faisal Road
Kodiac colt who shaded a tight finish on his 6f Yarmouth debut in May (second and third won next time). Failed to beat a rival in the Chesham but got back on track to some extent on first start for his new handler when eighth in a valuable nursery at Goodwood 10 days ago. More required.

Race 6 Haydock 18:15 Handicap (Class 4) 8f

293 Tarrabb
Had a bit in hand when making a winning start at Chelmsford in May and was firmly back on the right path when landing a 10-runner event at Ascot a month ago. Looks an obvious player up in trip.
9-4Kevin StottOwen Burrowslocked2.5/13.33/133
366 Queen Aminatu
Already a dual winner and was unlucky not to complete a hat-trick when a narrow third over 7f here on her penultimate outing. Struggled in listed company last time but makes plenty of appeal back in calmer waters.
9-2Tom MarquandWilliam Haggaslocked3.5/13.33/15
428 Rose Barton
Career best when winning 6-runner handicap (9/4) at Windsor (8.1f, good to firm) 42 days ago, making all. Likeable sort who still hasn't had much racing.
9-1Jack MitchellKevin Philippart locked7.5/18/17
234 Valley Mist
Lightly-raced filly who has shown a fair level of form but will need to improve for first-time cheekpieces if she's to defy quite a stiff opening mark.
9-3Dougie CostelloSaeed bin Suroorlocked8.5/128/1229
1114 Ana Gold
In excellent form at present and was only just touched off at Redcar 11 days ago despite conceding first run. Another bold showing looks on the cards.
8-10Paul HanaganRichard Faheylocked12/17/142
291 Don't Tell Claire
Fairly useful mare but she comes here on the back of modest eighth in handicap at Ascot (8f) 29 days ago. More required.
9-13Cieren FallonDaniel & Claire locked14/114/10
299 Canoodled
Stepped up on reappearance when runner-up at Newmarket and encouraging efforts over 7f the last twice. Return to this trip will suit, and worthy of consideration.
9-0David EganEd Walkerlocked18/17/161
162 The Flying Ginger
Dual winner in 2021 who has just one respectable effort to her name this term. Failed to beat a rival at York last time and is difficult to fancy.
9-9Ben CurtisRoger Felllocked18/133/183
712 Golden Melody
Successful three times in 2021 and mostly running well in defeat this season, third of 11 at Chester 7 days ago. Likely to be thereabouts.
8-13David AllanTim Easterbylocked18/116/111
295 Celtic Empress
Winner at Newmarket (1m) in May despite a slow start. Has generally held her form since and was stretched by a longer trip at Chester last time, so could bounce back.
9-3Hollie DoyleHeather Mainlocked20/116/120
813 Rainbow Colours
Improved effort to gain second victory at Ripon earlier this month and followed up at Chepstow 10 days later. Solid efforts since, making her effort earlier than ideal at Goodwood recently, so not discounted.
8-13Franny NortonCharlie & Mark locked20/18.5/158
387 Urban Violet
Good effort at Yarmouth on penultimate outing but looked laboured at Epsom next time. Return to this trip could suit but others are more appealing.
9-2George BassMick Channonlocked25/150/1100
810 Alpha Cru
Creditable third of 8 in handicap (10/1) at Hamilton (8.3f, good) 8 days ago, finishing with running left having met trouble. One to be interested in.
9-0Daniel TudhopeDavid O'Mearalocked25/122/112

Race 7 Haydock 18:45 Handicap (Class 4) 16f

444 Run For Oscar
In top form over hurdles last year, running to a useful level when winning a brace of big-field handicaps. Kept on well for third on the level at the Curragh in June and he could be well handicapped in this sphere for shrewd yard.
9-9Ben CurtisC Byrneslocked1.75/11.1/137
235 Arctic Fox
Won brace of small-field handicaps over shorter trips here this summer. Up 6 lb in a deeper race trying a new trip but has to command respect in her current mood.
9-8David NolanMartin Todhunterlocked6.5/15/123
3712 The Predictor
Isn't bred for this far but has certainly improved for increased emphasis on stamina fitted with cheekpieces, 7 lengths clear of the rest at Doncaster last time, and the winner has won since so lots to like.
8-2Cam HardieRichard Faheylocked9/19/10
1613 Levitate
Relished step up to 2m taking on elders for the first time when successful in 7-runner handicap at Thirsk 16 days ago. Up 4 lb but he's on the up.
8-2Franny NortonCharlie & Mark locked11/17/136
4911 Kaizer
Lowly Flat mark compared to hurdles ability and he landed a bit of a punt at Pontefract in June. Poor effort returned to timber since and he's 12 lb out of the weights here.
8-3Aiden BrookesEwan Whillanslocked14/122/157
187 Sovereign Duke
Ended 2021 out of sorts but all the better for his reappearance when gaining second career win at Sandown. 2 lb rise perfectly fair and 2m is worth exploring.
9-5Rhys ClutterbuckHenry Candylocked14/140/1186
302 El Picador
Tricky ride but he's been in good form and did well to come from last to score at Musselburgh (12.5f) in June. Bettered that form from a 5 lb higher mark when a close fourth at Carlisle/third at York and now goes up in trip.
9-12Callum RodriguezKeith Dalgleishlocked16/120/125
158 Real Terms
Lightly raced for a 5-y-o and arrives in pursuit of a hat-trick following a brace of wins at up to 11.2f last month. Strong at the finish both starts but 2m is uncharted territory.
9-5Oliver StammersGrant Tuerlocked18/114/122
339 Malakahna
Completed hat-trick in juvenile campaign over hurdles at Cheltenham in April. Brushed aside back on the level last month but 9.5f trip may have been inadequate and usual tongue tie is back on.
9-2David EganIan Williamslocked18/111/139
26 Haizoom
Back-to-back winner in August/September and left reappearance run well behind when adding to tally at Hamilton in May. Solid efforts on the whole since and return to 2m in her favour.
9-6Sam JamesKeith Dalgleishlocked20/122/110
2910 Kasperenko
Narrow winner of an apprentices' handicap on debut for Eric Alston (11.8f) in September. Plenty of peaks and troughs since and latest run at York suggests 2m stretches him.
