2.05 – Out Do 9/2 from 13/2

David O'Meara's charge was a real eyecatcher at York last time and he's been backed to take advantage of a possibly favourable stands' side draw.

3.10 – Perfect Blessings 6/1 from 15/2

Clive Cox's filly has raced only on soft in her career so the forecast rain is in her favour and after two runs she's the most unexposed filly in the line-up.

3.45 – Bilimbi 5/2 from 3/1

William Haggas' charge hosed up a Musselburgh and is well-fancied to defy an 8lb hike in the weights in the Scoop6 finale this afternoon.

4.20 – Fun Mac 9/4 from 4/1

Hung on to win at Leicester on reappearance after travelling well and could have more to offer up just 4lb.


2.55 – Micks Yer Man 7/1 from 9/1

Improved on soft ground early this season so the rain has seen his price trimmed ahead of the Goodwood feature.


2.50 – Joe Eile 9/1 from 12/1

Leg 2 of the Scoop6 and John Quinn's six-year-old has been well backed following a good fifth in the Thirsk Hunt Cup two starts ago.

3.25 – Solar Spirit 9/1 from 12/1

Won four times at the track and our punters have come for Tracy Waggott's course specialist to go in again today.

Trader Tip

1.35 Haydock  - Glenard

Glenard looks to have an outstanding chance in the opener at Haydock today.  He caught the eye travelling well when not disgraced in the Chester Cup latest and runs off the same make today. This course winner remains unexposed at this sort of distance and Ryan Moore takes the ride today.  He probably wouldn’t want a lot more rain but I expect him to put up a bold showing in this easier race.
