Second of 10 at Haydock on second racecourse appearance, trainer/jockey combo has a great record at this course. Not the worst of draws either, he should be well in the mix

Two seconds and a win from opening three runs, her yard is flying at the moment. Drops back down in to Nursery’s after making handicap debut at Glorious Goodwood, she shouldn’t be far off here

Placed at this course last September and is three places from three runs here. Now back down to a mark of 79, the mark in which he was when last running here, he could spring a surprise

Found plenty when winning a relatively competitive maiden at Windsor a couple of weeks ago. Now steps up in trip to 6f, he really could be anything for top connections

Won the Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes in 2018, he’s still relatively fresh and showed class when finishing third of seven behind eventual July Cup winner Oxted in Group 3 company last time out. That was his first run in 276 days and with Atzeni heading to the course for just the one ride, it’s clear connections are confident

Made a great start to 2020 when winning well at Newbury after a lengthy lay off. Outclassed when 7th of 18 at big odds at Glorious Goodwood, he’s back at a course which his owner and trainer loves and he’s a big threat to the market principles

Won a decent maiden on debut at Doncaster in July last year but is without a win since. Did however appreciate the step up to 1m 2f when placing at Windsor last month. Off the same mark here, she’s got big place chances
