A group three five furlong sprint and with four three year olds lurking about who could turn out to be anything eventually but none have done enough yet to make me think they can win but if I had to put one of them up as the most potentially dangerous it would be Beacon who comes out third top on my figures from 2014 but has hit form this season so far but if it comes back to its best it could make the frame, my second spot goes to SPIRIT QUARTZ 20/1 who ran well at Ascot last time out in a group one race which proves its in form and it ought to find this could be much easier. Top spot goes to STEPPER POINT 14/1 who finished behind Spirit Quartz last time where it led but got bumped about a furlong from the finish and then faded but its the only known front runner in the field so could get things its own way up front here but I'm suggesting backing both each way to hopefully show a profit.
2:05 Leicester - Another tricky little race with a few maybe's that could have some affect on the race which makes it hard to give anything but the basics, there are two known front runners in Meandmyshadow who ran well for us last time out when second at a big price at Newcastle, it faded close home that day and this course is slightly stiffer plus it might not get an uncontested lead this time, Verus Delicia, Lucky Di and Caminel have shown glimpses of good form but not consistently, my top rating is the other likely front runner GOADBY 9/1 and if it does get to the front will be hard for these to catch.
3:00 Beverley - A big field of seventeen runners and plenty of early pace with five known front runners spread across the track the bias is with a low draw and Pea Shooter stall one and Rusty Rocket stall two will ensure its fast that side of things, I've got joint second top ratings with BONDI BEACH BOY 16/1 a potential front runner but drawn in stall sixteen and if they split into two groups it could lead over there and at the odds has to be an each way bet, Noodles Blue Boy has got a seven pound claimer on board which could move it to top spot but the apprentice has ridden fifteen times for the stable without success and hes only had two wins from fifty five rides in four seasons so it doesn't inspire much confidence, top spot is FLASH CITY 11/2 who normally tracks the leaders and looks fairly well drawn in stall three but suggest doing both as bets to how a profit whichever one wins.
4:00 Haydock - A nice class two conditions race with only George Dryden being known to lead before so being a three year old it might improve but it has got a lot to do here, Clear Spring is my second top rated whilst top spot goes to another three year old, ANGELIC LORD 8/1 who will be staying on at the finish as it might in time prefer a longer trip so hopefully they will go fast enough for its stamina to kick in.
4:35 Haydock - Eleven runners with two horses, Sir Billy Wright and New Strategy who would lead if nothing else wanted to but there are two more known front runners in the race, Whoztehcat who isn't in my top four, ALESAID 9/1 is a three year old and is both the other known front runner and either top or second top rated, I'm quite certain its capable of repeating its best time from Goodwood but BOP IT 20/1 has got form from last year which would make it the likeliest winner but its form hasn't been up to that grade yet this season but at the price I have suggest a small bet, I would hate to miss a 20/1 shot that had got a chance of some sorts so I'm going with backing both to show a profit whichever one wins.
