AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 1 Haydock 13:30 Handicap (Class 2) 5f

372 Rogue Spirit
Has made a good start, successful twice over 5f and placed in the Newbury Super Sprint. Looked stretched by 6f in strong York nursery 5 weeks ago and big shout back at this trip off 1 lb lower.
9-7Connor PlanasTom Cloverlocked2/11.75/113
481 Al Dasim
Landed the odds at Windsor (5f) in July, looking more straightforward in the process. 2¾ lengths sixth of 10 to Ocean Vision in listed race at Deauville (5f, good) 48 days ago. Now starts out in nurseries for his third different trainer.
9-9Pat CosgraveGeorge Bougheylocked4/13.5/113
223 Kuwait City
Won at Yarmouth in May and ran well despite things not panning out ideally in Racing League nursery over this trip at Windsor 3 weeks ago. Not discounted now fitted with tongue tie.
9-1Luke MorrisJohn Butlerlocked4.5/19/1100
236 Queen Of Uplands
Yard going well and she opened her account in 5f Lingfield AW nursery 3 weeks ago. That form probably isn't great and she's up 4 lb but she remains with potential over the minimum trip.
8-10Pierre-Louis JaminTom Dascombelocked6/15.5/18
244 Raven's Up
Showed improved form to get off the mark in 4-runner Ripon fillies' novice last month, looking more settled down at 5f under this apprentice. Could go on again now handicapping.
8-12Benoit De La Marco Bottilocked7/110/143
238 Boom Boom Pow
Maiden not seen to best effect at Wolverhampton (6f) 3 weeks ago and not without a chance on some of her earlier form, including over 5f.
8-3J F EganRalph Beckettlocked9/16/133
297 Storm Venture
Needs to get back to something like the level of his debut form now handicapping and he's not been shaping like a 5f horse.
8-5Franny NortonRichard Faheylocked25/122/112
There are 7 runners in this race.

AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 2 Haydock 14:05 Handicap (Class 3) 8f

216 Moon Watch
Made a winning debut in 1m maiden at Nottingham and still looked green when good second of 3 in 1m Newcastle novice 21 days ago. Player now going handicapping with more to come.
9-9Benoit De La John & Thady locked5/16.5/130
4813 Delorean
Progressive sort who landed 1m handicap here last month, despite still not looking the finished artticle. Has more to offer and very much one to consider despite taking a 4 lb rise.
9-2Hector CrouchRalph Beckettlocked5/13/140
225 Croupier
Low-mileage 3-y-o who resumed winning ways in 1m handicap at Windsor 22 days ago. Can make his presence felt once more nudged up just 1 lb.
9-9Luke MorrisSimon & Ed locked6.5/17/18
16314 Foden
Gelded and returned much improved with win in 7.4f handicap at Beverley in April. That form has worked out well so he's firmly in the picture despite having an absence to overcome.
9-1Sean LeveyRichard Hannonlocked7/111/157
1188 Vintage Choice
Redcar maiden winner who returned with a solid second in 7f Wolverhampton novice. Gelded before below-par seventh on his handicap debut at Haydock in May. Worth another chance.
9-7Adam FarragherWilliam Haggaslocked8/17/113
204 Helm Rock
Dual winner around 9f at Carlisle and Wolverhampton in August. Posted another solid effort when ninth in 1m Kempton handicap last time so he's no forlorn hope.
9-10Dylan HoganDaniel & Claire locked12/18/133
582 Amor Vincit Omnia
Course winner for Tom Dascombe in 2021. Off 10 months before last of 18 in 7f handicap at Goodwood 58 days ago. Hood is reached for now.
9-10P J McDonaldHugo Palmerlocked14/118/129
810 Yaaser
Already a four-time winner this year, latest coming in 7f handicap at Doncaster in August. Posted another solid effort when third of 14 at Newcastle (1m) 8 days ago so he needs considering.
9-5Clifford LeeJim Goldielocked14/15.5/161
1619 Proclaimer
Gained a remarkable seventh win from 8 starts in 1m Kempton handicap in April. Off the track since beating only one at Lingfield later that month but he can't be discounted after a break.
9-5Oisin McSweeneyJulie Camacholocked20/125/125
811 Garden Oasis
Off the mark for 2022 at Ripon in August but only eleventh of 15 at Pontefract (1m) 8 days ago. A course winner though so he could easily bounce back.
9-3James SullivanTim Easterbylocked25/140/160
2012 Sucellus
C&D winner in June who got back on track when third of 6 in 1m handicap here 20 days ago. Unreliable type on balance though.
9-2George RookeOliver Greenall & locked25/118/128
413 Kalganov
Useful performer in France for Fabrice Chappet (sold for €55,000 in July). Handicapper took no chances with his mark though, and he was well held on his British/stable debut at Doncaster 41 days ago. More is needed.
9-10Jason WatsonDavid O'Mearalocked28/180/1186
627 Amaysmont
Back to winning ways in 1m Newcastle handicap in June but only sixth there off a 7 lb higher mark following month. Needs to hit the ground running after his break.
9-8Oisin OrrRichard Faheylocked28/128/10
161 Bright Start
Useful at his best but off over 6 months before coming in only ninth of 11 in 10f handicap at Doncaster 16 days ago. Back down in trip with work to do.
10-0Pat CosgraveSaeed bin Suroorlocked33/128/115
There are 14 runners in this race.

Race 3 Haydock 14:40 Handicap (Class 3) 14f

838 Speycaster
Fairly useful sort who, on the back of a gelding operation, shaped better than the bare result when fourth from a poor position over C&D 83 days ago. Might do better now fitted with blinkers.
9-0Hector CrouchRalph Beckettlocked3.5/13.5/10
1001 Baltic Bird
Progressed again to get off the mark in 12-runner maiden at Yarmouth in May and best excused his next effort in the Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot. Off since and expected to get back on the up.
9-11Benoit De La John & Thady locked4.5/16.5/144
276 Post Impressionist
Is yet to kick on from a highly promising start but the trip has been inadequate on his last couple of starts and he's now tried in cheekpieces with a 5-lb claimer on board, so every chance of a big run.
9-5Adam FarragherWilliam Haggaslocked5.5/16/19
622 Sea King
Made a winning return at Doncaster in April and, while he hasn't been able to build on that as yet, he remains with potential back from a couple of months off.
9-10Luke MorrisSir Mark Prescott locked6/14/133
207 Double Cherry
Confirmed opening mark a lenient one when readily landing a Goodwood handicap (12f) in June but has looked only averagely treated since, fourth of 11 at Ascot 20 days ago.
9-5Sean LeveyTom Wardlocked8/16/125
434 Zain Nights
Showed good attitude to score over 1½m in first-time cheekpieces at Newbury in July and has performed at least respectably on both subsequent outings. Doesn't appear to be ahead of his mark, though.
9-7Trevor WhelanHarry & Roger locked9/114/156
3810 Haarar
Dual winner this term but seemed undone by a rise when only fourth at Chelmsford last time. Looks vulnerable in this grade.
8-8Dylan HoganMichael Belllocked11/114/127
585 Teumessias Fox
AW winner who improved on turf subsequently but put up a tame display (too free) at Goodwood a couple of months ago. Not a guaranteed stayer up in trip.
9-7Jason WatsonAndrew Baldinglocked12/112/10
353 Nova Legend
Open his account at Ffos Las in August but only second at Salisbury next time, seemingly not applying himself under pressure. Others make more appeal.
9-7Theodore LaddJames Fergusonlocked12/116/133
119 Flamborough
Still relatively unexposed and left previous form well behind when runner-up at Kempton 11 days ago, pulling clear of the remainder. Should be thereabouts if he can back that up returning to turf.
8-9Franny NortonCharlie & Mark locked22/114/136
There are 10 runners in this race.

Race 4 Haydock 15:15 Maiden (Class 4) 6f

9-2P J McDonaldJames Hortonlocked5/13.5/130
2711 Oneforsue
Improved with each run, faring easily the best of the pair that raced far side when fifth of 18 in novice event at Newmarket (6f, good to soft) 27 days ago. Open to further progress and high on shortlist.
9-2Theodore LaddEric Alstonlocked6/14.5/125
153 Centrefold
Twice-raced filly. Better effort when third of 7 in novice event at Chelmsford City (6f, 4/5) 15 days ago, unable to sustain effort.
9-2Ray DawsonRoger Varianlocked6/13.5/142
298 Lady Manyara
Much better for debut when third in novice at Carlisle 4 weeks ago and may do better again.
9-2Clifford LeeK R Burkelocked10/110/10
04 Chandeleur Island
Foaled April 28. 220,000 gns yearling, Starspangledbanner filly. Half-sister to several winners, including winner up to 6f Shamshon and winner up to 1m Boerhan, both useful. Dam, 7f/1m winner (including at 2 yrs), half-sister to smart sprinter Millisle. Yard 1-22 with 2-y-o newcomers this year.

2114 Shot
Showed bit more than first time up when tenth of 13 in novice event at Ascot (6f, good, 40/1) 21 days ago, unable to sustain effort. Will be of more appeal in nurseries.

Race 5 Haydock 15:50 Maiden (Class 4) 6f

468 Mutaany
Well-bred colt who continued race-by-race progress when second of 9 in novice event at Wolverhampton (6.1f) 46 days ago, nicely clear of the rest. Sets a good standard.
9-2Dane O'NeillCharles Hillslocked1.38/12/145
01 Almaty Star
Foaled March 21. 200,000 gns yearling, Kodiac colt. Dam, 7f winner who stayed 9f, half-sister to very smart 1¼m winner (stayed 1½m) Scottish. Newcomers from yard often fancied.

293 Atomic Impact
Twice-raced colt. Third of 11 in novice event (9/2) at Carlisle (5.8f, good) 29 days ago, slowly away. May well do better.

9-2John FahyClive Coxlocked8/13.33/158

Shaped quite well in a reasonable race on debut but unable to quite match that form despite finishing third of 9 in novice event at Chelmsford (7f, 5/1) 8 days ago.
9-2Sean LeveyRichard Hannonlocked16/111/131
229 Royal Cay
Denied a clear run when fourth of 12 in novice event (33/1) at this C&D (good to firm) 22 days ago. Kept on nicely in the end though, so remains capable of better.
9-2Oisin OrrRichard Faheylocked20/118/110
6910 Sajwaan
Too green to show true worth when eighth of 10 in novice event at Newbury (6f, good to firm) on debut 69 days ago. First run for yard after leaving Roger Varian but joined another good stable.
9-2Luke MorrisArchie Watsonlocked25/150/1100
292 Another Baar
Offered something to work on when fifth of 11 in novice event at Carlisle (5.8f, good) on debut 29 days ago. Tongue strap fitted.

011 Scotts' Moon

Race 6 Haydock 16:25 Handicap (Class 5) 14f

14619 Pentland Hills
2019 Triumph Hurdle winner. Not seen since finishing well beaten in the 2020 Champion Hurdle but he could be very well treated back on the Flat if retaining anything like his old ability.
9-4Sean LeveyNicky Hendersonlocked2.25/12.75/122
1712 Sulochana
10/1, creditable second of 8 in handicap at Leicester 17 days ago, faring best of those who came from the rear. Another who can't be discounted.
8-13Benoit De La Hughie Morrisonlocked6/17/117
213 Mercian Hymn
Pair of AW wins at the end of 2021 and mostly creditable efforts ths year, including on turf. One to consider now tackling 1¾m for the first time.
9-8Ray DawsonSir Mark Toddlocked8/17/113
285 Tendentious
Winner on 2m Doncaster reappearance in April. Back to that level when narrowly denied by an improving 3-y-o at Thirsk (2m) last month. Claims, particularly if cheekpieces see him find a bit more.
9-8Jason WatsonDavid O'Mearalocked8/114/175
287 Tralee Hills
Twelve runs since last win in 2021. Creditable third of 11 in handicap at Ffos Las (2m, good, 10/3) 28 days ago. Can't be knocked for consistency but others are preferred for win purposes again.
9-7William CarverSimon Hodgsonlocked12/112/10
474 Kasperenko
Confirmed return to form when third of 11 over 2m here last month. Could figure again.
9-8Oisin McSweeneyEric Alstonlocked14/110/129
308 East End Girl
Travelled strongly when landing 8-runner handicap at Newcastle (12.5f, 5/2) last month. Found life tougher against a bunch of 3-y-os at Kempton next time but may fare better back against older opposition.
9-7P J McDonaldLucy Wadhamlocked16/15.5/166
2215 Order Of St John
Creditable fourth of 8 in handicap (9/2) at this course (11.5f, good to firm) 22 days ago. Up in trip. Has a bit to find.
8-6Joey HaynesD J Jeffreyslocked16/120/125
3452 Alghazaal
Pretty useful on Flat. Underachieved over hurdles for this yard last winter but he may fare better back on the level. Betting should guide after 6 months off.
9-9Finley MarshCharlie Longsdonlocked20/150/1150
216 Good Soul
Creditable third on Lingfield (AW) reappearance in July but below par in 2 appearances since. This is just his second outing on turf.
9-7Clifford LeeHugo Palmerlocked25/118/128
2810 Lady Percival
Fair form on AW but has yet to prove she's as effective on turf, finishing down the field at Ffos Las 4 weeks ago.
9-2George RookeHughie Morrisonlocked28/116/143
1714 Clifftop Heaven
Latest win at Doncaster in July. Also went close at Wolverhampton next time. Possibly unsuited by testing ground when last of 7 at Catterick latest.
8-9Luke MorrisArchie Watsonlocked28/150/179
2216 Red Derek
Runner-up 3 times this season. Respectable fifth of 8 in handicap at this course (11.5f, good to firm) 22 days ago. Back up in trip.
8-5Kieran O'NeillLisa Williamsonlocked50/116/168
2113 Rick Blaine
Course winner in 2020 but looked rusty after 16 months off at Kempton 3 weeks ago. Needs to have come on a lot in a short time.

Race 7 Haydock 16:55 Handicap (Class 5) 10f

103 Cumulonimbus
Showed much improved form when off the mark in 10-runner handicap at Yarmouth (10.1f, good) 10 days ago, dictating and drawing clear over 1f out. Must be taken seriously under 6 lb penalty.
9-136exMark WinnCharlie Felloweslocked2/11.38/131
184 Electress
Came out on top on first outing since leaving Ralph Beckett in 8-runner handicap at Brighton (9.9f, good to soft) 18 days ago, staying on to lead final 50 yds. That form has been boosted by the runner-up since, and she's a player up 3 lb.
9-11Taylor FisherArchie Watsonlocked3.33/17.5/1125
225 Typical Woman
Nathaniel filly who got back on track and possible she would have finished closer still with a clearer run late on when third of 7 in 9f handicap at Sandown (good) in August. Shaped as if still in good form at Windsor subsequently and needs considering in first-time cheekpieces.
9-8Connor PlanasIan Williamslocked4.5/12.5/144
241 Good Regal
Showed improved form to resume winning ways at Epsom in July and wasn't disgraced from a 9 lb higher mark at Ripon (9.8f) 24 days ago. Respected.
10-4Owen LewisIsmail Mohammedlocked7.5/16/120
86 Maokai
Showed much improved form to get off the mark switched to handicaps at Chepstow (1m) in August. However, ran no sort of race at Yarmouth last week, so a bounce back needed in first-time blinkers up in trip.
9-6Shariq MohdHarry & Roger locked16/120/125
402 Bearaway
Finally got off the mark in a Leicester claimer (11.8f) in July but ran no sort of race returned to handicap company at Pontefract last time. Bounce back needed.
