The feature event of the afternoon at Haydock is the Group Three John Of Gaunt Stakes over 7f and the horse that takes the eye is the Karl Burke trained El Caballo.
A very progressive horse earlier on in his career picking up six wins in his career, starting as a two year old when winning on his second start as a juvenile over 5f and then on his final start as a two year old he stepped up to 6f and beat the talented Navello.
Starting his three year old campaign off at Newcastle when easily winning a Conditions Stakes, he then went up to 7f at Lingfield in a Listed All-Weather Fast Track Qualifier and he took to the trip well to score by a length.
Dropped back to 6f for the All Weather 3 Year Old Championships, he made it five on the bounce to collar Tiber Flow late on for William Haggas.
Sent to Haydock over 6f in the Group Two Sandy Lane Stakes he showed his clear progression to make it six wins in a row, seeing off a late challenge from Flaming Rib.
Since then he has been seen on two occasions blowing out in both events, running no race in the Group One Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot and on his seasonal debut this term he was last of 10 in the Listed Cammidge Trophy with the heavy ground going against him.
Getting back to a track he has won at before and now getting his preferred quicker ground, he has all the ingredients to bounce back.
