Who To Follow At Haydock On Saturday - 03/07/21

Horse To Follow - Mystery Angel

The horse to follow on Saturday at Haydock is the George Boughey trained Mystery Angel and this experienced mare is the form pick off the back of her last run.

She won two of her first three starts, getting off the mark on her second start at Wolverhampton and then at Newmarket on her first turf outing.

The filly was then stepped up to Group Three company over 10f and finished a fair third of eight, but after that was dropped to a mile for her last two runs and she finished second in both.

Back as a three year old she finished second on seasonal debut at Wolverhampton and then went over to France for a Listed event over 1m2f and was again runner up.

Up to 10.5 furlongs back at Saint Cloud, the heavy ground did not help her case and she could only finish fifth in another Listed event

She was then seen back on quick ground giving a career best performance when winning the Listed Pretty Polly Stakes over 1m2f.

The filly was then seen finishing fourth in the Musidora Stakes at York behind Teona and Snowfall and off the back of that performance gave a career best last time out to finish second behind the emphatic winner Snowfall in the Group One Epsom Oaks.

On that form dropping back into a Group Two makes her one to beat, being versatile when it comes to ground.

Trainer To Follow - Sir Mark Prescott

Sir Mark Prescott is known for being one of the shrewdest trainers in the game and on Saturday is some live chances in both the Group and handicap events.

In the bet365 handicap he could field the smart filly Alerta Roja who looks to be extremely well handicapped and stays the 1m6f well.

Other big chances for the handler include Alpinista in the Lancashire Oaks with the filly being the 2/1 fav and after that he fields Longsider in the Old Newton Cup who is the 7/1 favourite.

Prescott has a superb record at the track over the last five years posing a strike rate of 25% having landed 30 winners and 26 places from 123 runners.

Jockey To Follow - Rab Havlin

John Gosden's second retained rider rider Rab Havlin could be set for a big day at the Merseyside track on Saturday, picking up some nice rides with Frankie Dettori at Sandown.

One of the big chances on the day is the Law Of The Sea that needs to defy top weight and Grand Bazaar in the Old Newton Cup who is the current 8/1 second favourite

Havlin heads into the meeting in some decent form landing four winners from his last 26 rides which sees him running at a 15% strike rate for the last two weeks.
