Weird Al: There's nothing odd about the money Sky Bet have seen for him

14:30 Haydock Sivola De Sivola 9/2 from 6/1

The exciting Sivola De Sivola has seen support in the Fixed Brush Hurdle at Haydock bidding to give trainer Tom George another big win following Olofi's success in last Sunday's Racing Post Hurdle. The six-year-old ran some excellent races last term and showed he retains all his ability when a good fourth at Cheltenham last month. With that run behind him, and with conditions to suit, he could prove hard to beat.

15:05 Haydock Weird Al 9/2 from 11/2

With creditable doubts about both Long Run and Silviniaco Conti, the mover in the Betfair Chase has been third favourite, Weird Al. A winner first time up for the past two seasons, Donald McCain's gelding obviously goes well fresh, he handles the ground and perhaps more importantly has been trained specifically for this race. Get your wheelbarrows out.

13:20 Lingfield Golden Desert 7/1 from 9/1

Early money has come for Simon Dow's Golden Desert in what looks competitive race at Lingfield Park. Well handicapped on old form, the two-time course winner runs off almost three stone lower than his highest winning mark and with the in-form Graham Lee taking over in the saddle, the eight-year-old looks primed to run a big race.
