Who To Follow At The Weekend

Horse To Follow - Dream Of Dreams

The big race at Haydock on Saturday is the Sprint Cup over six furlongs where some of the best sprinters in the world go to post for Group One glory.

Our selection and horse to follow at a double figure price in the contest is the Sir Michael Stoute trained Dream Of Dreams that seems to have everything going for him.

This five year old has had his best season to date starting off back in April on the all weather at Chelmsford and winning nicely in a Class 2 contest.

From there the horse stepped up to a Listed contest at Windsor and progressed again to see off a strong field of runners with the second place that day winning a good Group Two race last time out.

Royal Ascot was his best run of the year when being narrowly edged out on the line in the Group One Diamond Jubilee Stakes when Blue Point was not for passing.

Last time out was very underwhelming in the July Cup where he will have to reverse some form against these runners but we think you can draw a line through that run.

He will have conditions to suit with him favouring soft ground more so than other runners and if getting back to the form of the Diamond Jubilee he has to be in the mix and at a current price of 10/1 is hard to overlook even at an each way shout.

Trainer To Follow - Sir Michael Stoute

The great Sir Michael Stoute has been slightly quiet of late but we are hoping he can bounce back onto the scene with some big wins on Saturday.

He runs a decent amount of horses at Haydock with two in the first race that both stand a decent chance in the contest.

Calculation looks to be his best chance after landing a hat-trick last time out and having course and distance form.

He also runs Laafy in that race that holds a big chance at a bigger price after winning nicely at Nottingham last month and should come on for that run.

Crystal King and Melting Dew go for the trainer with the latter looking like the best chance in the race off the back of his staying on fourth in the Sky Bet Handicap at the Ebor meeting.

Dream Of Dreams is his big chance in the Group One on the day and all Stoute will be hoping for is to see the same horse that ran at Royal Ascot, if producing that run he will be tough to pass.

Jockey To Follow - Daniel Tudhope

Daniel Tudhope is a jockey that has been in the form of his life this year currently sitting in second place in the jockey championship and already breaking 100 winners for the season.

With this, he holds some superb entries at Haydock on Saturday and we think he can have a great day and try to add some pressure to current leader Oisin Murphy.

Tudhope has many runners on Saturday but the stand out ones from our point of view are obviously Dream Of Dreams who we have already gone in depth about and if there is one jockey who can get the best out of him again it is the Scotsman.

Others that take the eye are What's The Story trained by Keith Dalgleish in the Group Three Mile Stakes. This five year old won superbly last time out at the Ebor meeting in a good Handicap and if handling the step up to this company can be feared.

Arecibo is another one who was unlucky at the York festival and the gelding runs in another big five furlong handicap and should be in the mix again.

He has other runners but these three look to be his biggest chances on the day.
