Nick Shiambouros returns to the tipping chair with a couple of strong fancies from Goodwood and Haydock...


"This consistent performer holds his form well and represents good value at 6.05/1 on the exchange"

Back Take Cover in the 19:30 at Haydock

15:30, Goodwood - Algometer

Algometer should take all the beating in this fascinating Derby trial.

This Archipenko colt finished an excellent third to Midterm at Sandown last month. He kept on really well in the closing stages, and made the winner fight all the way to the line. This was his best piece of form to date and clearly has a lot more to offer.

He is currently trading at 2.6813/8 on the exchange and I have backed him at this price.

Prize Money is the obvious danger. He finished second to the progressive Taqdeer, but needs to improve significantly to trouble the selection.


19:30, Haydock - Take Cover

Take Cover sets a decent standard in this interesting Listed sprint.

This gelding finished third to Profitable in the Palace House at HQ last month. He was collared deep inside the final furlong but was not beaten all that far. I thought that was a super effort, and comes in to this race in great heart.

This consistent performer holds his form well and represents good value at 6.05/1 on the exchange.

Out Do could be the main danger. He won a Listed race at York last July and will be ready to do himself justice.

Double Up is the favourite at 4.57/2. He is relatively lightly raced and appears to be on an upward curve, but his price is a little thin in my opinion.
