The first race at Haydock this weekend is the Class 5 Handicap over 1m4f and at the prices Screaming Petrus for David Loughnane could have a big chance.
A very smart three year old on the all weather he was seen three times at the back end of last year, finishing third over 9.5f at Wolves on debut and then backed that over the same C&D when a close second.
He managed to get off the mark on his third and final run in December, upped to 12f at Wolves and revelling in the extra distance.
Making his seasonal/turf debut this season at Ascot he ran no sort of race in what was his first handicap experience aswell, but down 2lb to a mark of 74 for this event, he should be go close.
Will come on for the run.
