Today's best bet Shamlahar runs at Haydock

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

"Trainer Simon Crisford had a winner yesterday, and should have this filly ready at first asking"

Back Shamlahar in the 16:05 at Haydock

High times at Goodwood

15:45 Goodwood - Back Highbrow @ 8.615/2

Highbrow should prove difficult to beat in this interesting contest.

This colt put in a much improved effort when finishing third to Key Victory in a Listed contest at HQ earlier this month. Despite not getting the clearest of runs, he put in some good work in the closing stages and finished the race with good energy. I think this likeable individual has more to offer and is fairly priced at 2.77/4 on the exchange.

Main Street could be the danger. He has won a couple of races at Chelmsford in good style and is open to further improvement. The water is deeper today, but trainer John Gosden has a super record in this race. At present he is trading at 8.615/2 on the exchange.


In-form Crisford to win again

16:05 Haydock - Back Shamlahar @ 6.411/2

I am going to take a chance with debutant Shamlahar in this novice stakes.

This Shamardal filly is out of the high-class dam Miss Lahar who won a Listed race over six furlongs. She was also Group placed and was rated at 102 during her racing career. She was an expensive yearling purchase and must have looked the part in the ring. Trainer Simon Crisford had a winner yesterday, and should have this filly ready at first asking. At present she is trading at 6.411/2 on the exchange which is more than fair.

Dance On The Day heads the market at 2.982/1. She won a Wolverhampton novice stakes in game fashion last month, but looks up against it with a penalty. I am a layer of the favourite, not a backer.
