Who To Follow At Haydock On Saturday - 21/01/23

James Mackie

Trainer To Follow - Nigel Twiston-Davies

Nigel Twiston-Davies sends a strong team to Haydock on Saturday starting in the Supreme Trial with Matata looking to reverse the form with some of the runners.

He has a better chance in the Champion Hurdle Trial with Greatwood Hurdle winner I Like To Move It is looking to get back on track dropping back to his preferred trip.

Looking to make it a hat-trick on the day, Bristol De Mai has been a superb yardstick and although now 12 years old, heavy ground and Haydock is his playground.

Twiston-Davies then fields Broadway Boy in the staying handicap hurdle having won over the same distance last time out and it would be no surprise to see him go close again.

Finally, the yard have the potentially well handicapped Sergeant Wilson in the lucky last, with a mark of 112 well below his capabilities.

Jockey To Follow - Harry Skelton

The Skelton's could have another super Saturday at Haydock starting in the opener with the even money favourite Lac De Constance looking to get back on track.

In the following race Sholokjack looks extremely well handicapped off 125 from his hurdles from and hopefully the time since his chase debut has been spent on working on his jumping.

Another favourite for the Skelton's comes in the Grade Two Supreme Trial with Pembroke being well backed and looking to make it a hat-trick of wins.

The Skelton's field the 14 year old Blaklion in the Peter Marsh Handicap Chase looking for him to roll back the years and then another older horse in Alnadam is looking to land the Handicap Hurdle.

In the final event of the afternoon Hartur D'Oudairies should be better than his mark of 117 and on Saturday can show that.

The yard head into the weekend in extremely good form, with Skelton running at a superb 40% strike rate for the last two weeks, managing four winners from his last 10 rides.
