The first race of the day on ITV comes from Kempton on the all weather with the Listed Magnolia Stakes seeing a small but select field of runners heading to post.
We are siding with the William Haggas trained Faylaq that has promised so much during his career to date and this season can finally show how good he can be.
The five year old in 2019 showed his pure ability when notching up a good run of performances, winning at Ripon, Newmarket and Kempton, whilst also finishing second at Ascot in handicap events.
He was off the track for sometime and returned in June 2020 and looked to need the run when well beaten in the 1m4f Listed Buckhound Stakes at Newmarket.
He was dropped to 1m2f last time out and although running slightly better, faded again in the final stages in the Listed Steventon Stakes.
The son of Dubawi was an extremely expensive purchase of 1,500,000gns and if fit should be taken seriously having bags of ability and now just needing to show it.
