Tim Easterby sends one runner to this Haydock contest on Saturday with Boardman. The seven-year-old has already raced five times in 2023, winning on his most recent outing at Chester last month in a class two handicap by three lengths. This will be his first foray into grouped company in his career, after several runs at class two level in the last couple of years. He has managed four wins in that time, and Easterby now thinks he’s ready for this type of company.
Much tougher test for this Kingman gelding into group three territory, but not completely ruled out against some out of form runners. Phil Dennis does the steering.
