1:50 Haydock -
TARBOOSH 14/1 has got the best jockey stats of my top 3 and the best draw and tracks the leaders MIDNIGHT MALIBU 14/1 likes these flatter courses and usually races prominently
FOXTROT KNIGHT 10/1 should also be prominent from the off.
SUMMARY: I can't split these 3 and I will be having an each way bet on each to show a profit whichever one does the job.
Midnight Malibu 14/1 2nd
Foxtrot Knight 10/1 6th
Shamsaya is my 2nd top rated and this 3year old could still improve SEEKING MAGIC 12/1 top rated and the trainer has a 17% win ratio here and the jockey has a 15% win ratio for the stable which points to connections expecting a big run in this race and with 8 runners has to be backed each way.
Seeking Magic 12/1 1st
Field Of Vision looks the most likely leader and if getting things right will be hard to catch.
OEIL DE TIGRE 9/4 is the only horse with a time good enough to pick up the leader and it could pay to do the forecast with these 2 horses.
Oeil De Tigre 9/4 3rd
HEE HAW 7/4 is my top rated and this 3year old is the only known front runner in the race and if getting an easy lead should prove hard to catch for the rest of the runners.
Hee Haw 7/4 5th
Willytheconqueror is joint 2nd top rated but the trainer is 1-32 at this course Lightscameraction is joint 2nd top but the trainer is 1-32 at this course MONSIEUR JOE 14/1 is top rated and usually tracks the leaders.
SUMMARY: I will be backing the top rated but I am worried about the bottom weight Yalta who has been racing in the much better company and now dropped to this level it might spark it into life so my stakes will be kept low in an each way wager.
Monsieur Joe 14/1 2nd
Hoof It 16/1 is my joint 2nd top rated and could at least make the frame. Red Pike 12/1 a possible pace setter is the other joint 2nd top rated CLASSIC SENIORITY 12/1 comes out the top and the trainer has an 18% win rate here but at the prices, will be backing all 3 each way to profit whichever one does the job.
Classic Seniority 16/1 1st
Gamesome is joint 2nd top rated and should be staying on strongly at the finish. Signore Piccolo is the other joint 2nd top rated and a possible pace setter here ORIENTAL RELATION 12/1 is top rated and another possible front runner, the trainer has a 28% win rate with his older horses and the jockey has a 39% win rate for the stable so things point to them expecting it to go well in this race and again the price permits me to back it each way.
PS: With thunderstorms around the country please check the going before having a bet and if its soft to any degree my figures mean nothing.
Oriental Relation 12/1 6th
