The first race of the afternoon on ITV from Haydock is the Graduation Chase over 2m5 1/2f and Hitman for Paul Nicholls is the stand out candidate off the back of his seasonal debut.
A working progress horse for the champion trainer who thinks a lot of this gelding and he has shown big potential to be a classy horse over fences.
Sent chasing for the yard in 2020 when having a good novice career, finishing second to Allmankind in the Grade One Henry VIII Novices' Chase and having won twice that season he rounded it off at Aintree when narrowly denied in the Manifesto Novices' Chase.
Last season he made his seasonal debut in the Haldon Gold Cup when second to Eldorado Allen and next time out he had to settle for second again in the Grade One Tingle Creek behind stablemate Greaneteen.
Third of four in the Game Spirit Chase when not beaten far, he then went to Aintree and again played Bridesmaid in the Marsh Chase behind Fakir D'oudairies when looking the winner.
The theme continued on seasonal debut this term when second in the Grade Two Old Roan Handicap Chase at Aintree going down by a head but now pitched into a much easier event he should get back to winning ways.
Bundles of ability and now just needs to find that winning attitude.
