Fin And Game
Track:
 Haydock – 11:50
Jockey: Brian Hughes

He his a nice horse but I am finding it hard to place him over fences at the moment, but he’s ready for a run so he will take his chance. I think he is fairly handicapped and although the ground may be an issue, I just need to get a run into him.

Knockrobin
Track:
 Newcastle – 12:10
Jockey: Henry Brooke

He ran a nice race around Haydock the last day in a race he couldn’t win really. He jumped well around Carlisle the first day and all going well he should have a chance.

Raise A Spark
Track:
 Haydock – 12:25
Jockey: Brian Hughes

Obviously, ratings-wise we really shouldn’t be turning up but he’s plenty experience and I don’t think he’s particularly well-handicapped whichever way you look at it. So we have decided to see how far experience will take him in a straightforward novice chase. We are also going to take the hood off him and see if it makes any difference.

Ubaltique
Track:
 Haydock – 1:35
Jockey: Will Kennedy

He really likes the place and although it looks a competitive enough event, these are the races he will be aimed at. He will run at this meeting and the next Haydock meeting because he just seems to like Haydock Park.

Dark Sunset
Track:
 Newcastle – 1:55
Jockey: Harrison Beswick

She got a little bit lost at Carlisle the last day in a competitive race. The long-term plan is to go chasing with her but with limited opportunities, this small field should suit her. We will ride her a bit more positively and she should get the trip well, which should give her a squeak.

Chti Balko
Track:
 Haydock – 2:05
Jockey: Will Kennedy

Another horse that loves it at Haydock, the 2 miles 2 furlongs trip stretches in a tiny bit but he’s been running well, he will like the ground and he should run his race. It’s a small field Haydock handicap, which is right up his alley.

Testify
Track:
 Haydock – 2:40
Jockey: Brian Hughes

He ran ok up at Newcastle, when we were just trying to find someplace to get him started, he’s run well at Haydock in the past. He will go on the ground but if you look at what he did as a novice he’s probably not well-handicapped but that’s not going to change without him running.

Tawseef
Track:
 Haydock – 3:15
Jockey: Abbie McCain

He ran ok at Aintree and he will cope with the ground. He’s another one who has been running well and although he may not be well-handicapped he should run his race.

Best Chance: Chti Balko
