The focus is on Haydock for Thursday's attempt at the Placepot...
Hubertas looked to win with a bit in hand when scoring at Leicester last time and should be up to completing the hat-trick, a penalty for that narrow-but-authoritative success unlikely to stop him.
13:50- Count Montecristo looks capable of winning a maiden but he's sure to be carrying plenty of units, so we'll oppose him with some exciting newcomers hailing from top yards. Tashaar cost 380,000gns as a yearling and represents the red-hot Hannon yard. He makes some appeal on pedigree and has attracted a bit of market support, so a bold show could be on the cards. We'll also include the Saeed Bin Suroor-trained Storm Check as he's related to a number of winners, including the very smart Blue Monday, and hails from a yard going well.
14:20- The Richard Fahey-trained Awohaam was too green to do herself justice when sent off favourite in a Newmarket maiden on debut six weeks ago but can be expected to show plenty of improvement with the benefit of that run under her belt. We'll also include Martini Time as she makes some appeal on pedigree and represents the Mark Johnston yard who have had a number of winning debutants this season.
14:50- It's difficult to look beyond the claims of Ring of Truth as she showed plenty of promise when only just failing to win what is traditionally a strong maiden at Newbury. Richard Hannon's filly already sets the clear standard and, with improvement on the cards, she ought to win.
15:20- We'll again turn to Richard Hannon as Eltezam looked potentially smart when finishing third in a minor event on debut at Newbury two weeks ago and he should be capable of taking this en route to better things.
15:50- Meshardal has returned in fine form, easily completing the hat-trick at Doncaster earlier in the month before doing better still when going down narrowly at Thirsk last time. The thriving Meshardal can be relied upon to give his running and is likely to make his presence felt once more. We'll also include Signore Piccolo as he's improved since moving to the David O'Meara yard and may yet to better over six furlongs, still relatively unexposed at the distance.
16:20- Hubertas looked to win with a bit in hand when scoring at Leicester last time and should be up to completing the hat-trick, a penalty for that narrow-but-authoritative success unlikely to stop him. We'll also include Multellie as he wasn't seen to best effect on return at Beverley and should have plenty more to offer in handicaps, particularly as his stamina is drawn out.
