AvB - Pattern - Place

Race 1 Haydock 12:10 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 1) 16f

1256 Llandinabo Lad
Fairly useful form when reaching frame on all 3 outings in bumpers and similar form when making winning hurdling debut after 11 months off at Bangor 25 days ago. Sure to improve.
11-0Richard JohnsonTom Symondslocked5/16.5/130
2262 Do Your Job
Irish point winner who is very much going the right way over hurdles, scoring with ease in the mud at Ffos Las and Ayr (both 2m) last month. Well worth his place in this higher grade.
11-0Brendan PowellMichael Scudamorelocked2/11.75/113
3144 Flic Ou Voyou
Some fairly useful efforts in defeat last term and it has all come together for him this time round, completing a hat-trick in novice company this autumn. Expected to make bold bid for 4 in row.
11-0Harry SkeltonPaul Nichollslocked2.5/12.12/115
43405 Frimeur De Lancray
Promise in both novice hurdles last term, set to be placed when falling at the last at Catterick latterly. Had wind op since. More to come but this a tough ask.
11-0Ryan ManiaSue Smithlocked28/180/1186
5th127 Severance
Useful on the Flat for Mick Channon and looked a potentially smart recruit to hurdling when readily landing 17f Carlisle maiden 12 days ago. Can take step up in class in stride.
11-0Kielan WoodsBen Paulinglocked2.5/12.75/110
|PU|481 Billy Bathgate
Well held in 2 bumpers. Better signs when third on Kelso hurdle debut but the form is only modest and he's finished a remote fourth on the Flat since. Big outsider.
11-0Billy GarrittyAlistair Whillanslocked150/1300/1100
There are 6 runners in this race.

Race 2 Haydock 12:40 Handicap Chase (Class 2) 26f

12211 Snow Leopardess
Has come to chasing quite late but shaped encouragingly both starts in novice company during the autumn. Can leave bare form behind now handicapping.
10-10Brian HughesCharlie Longsdonlocked7/14.5/136
22698 Commodore
Landed 3m handicap chases on his only 2 starts in 2018/19. Looked like one with problems last season so returns with quite a bit to prove.
11-0Hugh NugentVenetia Williamslocked14/120/143
32561 Newtide
Useful hurdler who is built for fences, making it 2-2 in a Grade 2 at Wetherby in February. Tongue tied and failed to stay 30f in the National Hunt Chase at Cheltenham when last seen. Handicap bow.
11-12Ciaran GethingsKim Baileylocked7.5/17/17
4287 Claud And Goldie
Low-mileage chaser who has gained both his wins at Kelso. Enhanced good record fresh when runner-up back at that venue a month ago but this is a deeper race.
11-3Richie McLernonSandy Forsterlocked16/112/125
5th206 Sam's Adventure
Signed off for last term with career-best win in 3m handicap chase at Uttoxeter. Heavy defeat on reappearance 3 weeks ago needs casting aside.
11-5Danny CookBrian Ellisonlocked16/111/131
|F|3279 Secret Reprieve
Chepstow novice hurdle winner in 2018. Bettered that form in 3 runs over fences last winter and has the potential for better now handicapping up in trip on his return.
11-0Robbie PowerEvan Williamslocked5/14.5/110
|F|214 Saint Xavier
Pretty useful hurdler/chaser but ran poorly in French Grade 3 chase in June (sole run for Patrice Quinton). Fared as well as could be expected in the Charlie Hall 3 weeks ago. Cheekpieces back on.
11-10Billy GarrittyRichard Hobsonlocked18/112/133
|PU|2542 Deise Aba
Better than ever when landing Masters Handicap at Sandown in February, jumping soundly. Not quite in the same form in the Kim Muir but retains potential for his second season chasing.
11-11Richard JohnsonPhilip Hobbslocked4.5/16.5/144
|PU|375 Pop Rockstar
Made a successful reappearance at Carlisle in October 2019 and came up just a short head shy of repeating the feat in that corresponding race last month. Task is now to hold his form.
11-5Jonjo O'Neill JrJonjo O'Neilllocked7.5/18/17
|PU|3712 Pookie Pekan
Proved better than ever last season, back to winning ways over 20f at Carlisle. Excellent reappearance at that venue last month (24.5f) but this may prove to be too much of a stamina test.
10-6Sam ColtherdStuart Coltherdlocked12/114/117
|PU|283 Bob Mahler
Ended last season on the upgrade, resuming winning ways in Edinburgh National at Musselburgh before excellent third in the Kim Muir. Never a factor on reappearance and since undergone a breathing op.
11-11Paddy BrennanWarren Greatrexlocked12/114/117
|PU|25610 Ice Cool Champs
Went backwards from a successful debut for this stable last year but it might be that fresh is the time to catch him nowadays, so could return to form back from 8 months off.
10-11Sam Twiston-DaviesKerry Leelocked18/122/122

Race 3 Haydock 13:15 Conditions Chase (Class 2) 22f

1114 Master Tommytucker
Low mileage 9-y-o who has had jumping issues, but has looked smart when completing, hard held for latest win in a match at Huntingdon 10 days ago. Return to left-handed track will suit.
11-8Sam Twiston-DaviesPaul Nichollslocked1.88/12/16
2253 Good Boy Bobby
Useful bumper/novice hurdler who achieved a similar level over fences last season. Jumped well when making a winning reappearance in smooth fashion at Bangor last month. Hood left off upped in trip.
11-8Daryl JacobNigel locked3/12.25/125
33531 Dashel Drasher
Likeable sort who landed each of his last 4 starts in novice hurdles. Cast aside a first-fence blip at Newbury with a professional victory over C&D in December, but off since. Has had a wind op.
11-8Matt GriffithsJeremy Scottlocked4/14/10
4215 Commanche Red
Useful hurdler who made a successful handicap debut over fences at Kempton (20.5f) on Boxing Day. Failed to run any sort of race on last month's reappearance at Ascot and cheekpieces now on.
11-5Paddy BrennanChris Gordonlocked6/16.5/18
|F|356 Ravenhill Road
Did well for this yard last season, winning a C&D handicap (soft) in December. Better than bare result when fourth in Sky Bet Chase but fell on return and is up against it at the weights.
11-5Danny CookSue Smithlocked28/133/118
|PU|2542 Deyrann De Carjac
Initially took well to chasing win 2019 with a brace of novice wins 6 months apart at up to 21f. Held back by mistakes in better races after but record fresh is encouraging.

Race 4 Haydock 13:50 Handicap Hurdle (Class 2) 19f

12112 War Lord
Successful at Plumpton and Taunton last season. Encouraging reappearance second of 18 to reopposing Arrivederci at Wetherby last month, untidy jumps at last 2 flights proving costly. Respected.
11-0Robbie PowerColin Tizzardlocked10/16.5/135
22535 Umbrigado
Shaped well in 3m hurdle on this card on last year's reappearance. Failed to build on that in only 2 subsequent outings last term but returns with yard in form and remains unexposed.
11-8Fergus GillardDavid Pipelocked6.5/15/123
3299 Our Power
Having just third start for this yard when bagging very competitive event at Kempton (21f) in March. Shaped well when sixth of 19 on 21f Cheltenham return, leaving impression run just needed.
11-5Sam Twiston-DaviesNigel locked7.5/110/133
41313 Shakem Up'arry
Some pretty useful efforts in defeat last term and made no mistake on 2m Ffos Las return (heavy) 13 days ago. Pitched into warm race for first handicap but he's another with the potential for better.
10-13Kielan WoodsBen Paulinglocked5.5/15.5/10
5th3017 Kaizer
Gained reward for some good efforts this year (including on Flat) when seeing off 13 rivals at Carlisle (17f, soft) a month ago. 7 lb higher in a stronger race now, though.
10-4Billy GarrittyAlistair Whillanslocked25/116/136
6th212 Kid Commando
Quickly reached a smart level over hurdles, reappearing with 2m Ascot listed handicap win last month. Longer trip a slight worry given his enthusiastic demeanour but it's likely he has more to offer.
11-12Aidan ColemanAnthony Honeyballlocked4/15/125
7th297 Fix Sun
French bumper winner who looked useful when winning 2 of his 3 starts in novice hurdles last term. Travelled well for long way in Cheltenham handicap on reappearance and remains open to improvement.
11-5Daryl JacobNicky Hendersonlocked16/125/156
8th2726 Irish Roe
Likeable mare who won an Aintree handicap off 5 lb lower in May 2019 and posted largely good efforts in defeat later in the season. Suspicion this might be competitive enough for her, though.
11-8Sean QuinlanPeter Atkinsonlocked33/166/1100
|F|218 Arrivederci
Wincanton maiden winner and much improved when following up on Wetherby handicap debut/reappearance last month, forging clear after the last to beat War Lord 2¾ lengths. Definitely more to come.
11-5Jonjo O'Neill JrJonjo O'Neilllocked6.5/14/138
|F|423 Flash The Steel
Chepstow Silver Trophy winner last autumn and returned with a good second in that same race last month. Nudged up 3 lb but it may not prevent another prominent showing.
11-10Harry SkeltonDan Skeltonlocked14/114/10
|F|3911 Forest Bihan
Smart chaser last seen landing the Old Roan Chase at Aintree in October 2019. Lower mark back hurdling but he does return from absence in very competitive race.
11-12Danny CookBrian Ellisonlocked28/166/1136
|PU|4210 Le Ligerien
Raised his game when landing 2m soft-ground handicaps at Newbury and here in January. Bombed out at Cheltenham Festival in March but back on track to large degree when third on Chepstow return.
11-2Richard JohnsonPhilip Hobbslocked20/122/110
|PU|2916 Endlessly
Fairly useful Flat winner who was progressive over hurdles last winter, winning 2 novices. Headway when badly hampered 2 out on Cheltenham handicap debut/return. Remains open to progress.
10-6Paddy BrennanOlly Murphylocked25/128/112
|PU|214 Dear Sire
Has raised his game since returning from a break in July, producing best effort yet when landing a 2m Chepstow handicap in October. However, he was a remote fourth to Kid Commando at Ascot latest.

Race 6 Haydock 15:00 Conditions Chase (Class 1) 26f

12532 Bristol De Mai
Fine record at Haydock Park, dominating proceedings when winning this in 2017 and 2018 and running an admirable race behind Lostintranslation 12 months ago. Bold bid expected on return.
11-7Daryl JacobNigel locked3/12.25/125
22533 Clan Des Obeaux
Dual King George winner who disappointed again in the Gold Cup when last seen but that wasn't his running and he ran a blinder on his return last year, so expect a big performance. Has had a wind op.
11-7Sam Twiston-DaviesPaul Nichollslocked2.25/12.25/10
32535 Lostintranslation
Took his place at the top table with victory in this last year and left behind his King George flop after a wind op (tongue tied) with a cracking third in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The one to beat.
11-7Robbie PowerColin Tizzardlocked1.38/11.75/127
4214 Keeper Hill
Back on track in second season over fences last term, winning the graduation chase at this meeting on reappearance. Never really in the hunt in the Charlie Hall on return though, and stiff task here.
11-7Jonjo O'Neill JrWarren Greatrexlocked33/128/115
5th2731 Bellshill
Classy chaser in Ireland on his day, successful in the 2019 Irish Gold Cup. Below that form last season and faces a tall order on first start for new connections.

Race 7 Haydock 15:35 Handicap Chase (Class 3) 28f

1272 Perfect Candidate
Veteran chaser who held form well in long-distance events last season, successful in this, and should come on for his Aintree reappearance. Can't be dismissed.
11-11Paddy BrennanFergal O'Brienlocked9/18/111
2204 Fortified Bay
Dual winner last season and shaped as if retaining ability on return at Carlisle 20 days ago. Might need another run before he's fully tuned up, though.
11-7Sean QuinlanJennie Candlishlocked16/118/113
32528 Sheneededtherun
Not long with this stable and better than ever when completing 4-timer at Bangor in February. Respectable fourth at Uttoxeter next time and further improvement can't be ruled out after a wind op.
11-5Charlie ToddSam Allwoodlocked11/128/1155
|F|2012 Sutton Manor
Lightly-raced in recent years and has offered little on both outings this season.
10-6Stephen MulqueenLucinda Russelllocked50/150/10
|R|2521 Midnight Tune
Good strike rate over fences and can be forgiven a poor run having been ridden too aggressively at Uttoxeter 8 months ago. Likely to be primed first time, so bold showing on the cards after wind op.
11-12Aidan ColemanAnthony Honeyballlocked6/19/150
|R|2110 Financial Outcome
Made all at Doncaster in January and returned with a creditable effort behind Kings Monarch at Ffos Las in October. Undone by a bad mistake at Wetherby next time and likely to get back on the up.
10-10Daryl JacobRebecca Curtislocked9/19/10
|U|275 Pobbles Bay
Now leniently treated and shaped as if retaining all of his ability when second, in front of several of these, at Aintree on return. Could go close if building on that.
11-7Sean BowenEvan Williamslocked8/17/113
|PU|449 Kings Monarch
Had a quiet 2019 but returned better than ever to comfortably land 7-runner handicap at Ffos Las on reappearance. Form looks solid and a 5 lb rise might not stop him if he stays the longer trip.
11-4Sam Twiston-DaviesKerry Leelocked5/12.75/145
|PU|276 Don Poli
With his third different stable since leaving Gordon Elliott for a hefty sum but last month's Aintree debut for Dan Skelton offered lots of encouragement, so one to note from a very tempting mark.
11-7Harry SkeltonDan Skeltonlocked5/14/120
|PU|2811 Alminar
Likeable chaser who doubled tally at Chepstow (23.6f) in January and got right back on track when third in a competitive event at Cheltenham on return. Tongue tie back on after a subsequent wind op.
10-9David NoonanNigel Hawkelocked11/112/19
|PU|273 Ballydine
Well treated on his best efforts but hasn't run to form since early 2019 and not much encouragement to be gleaned from his reappearance at Aintree.
