David Ord heads to Haydock for his bet of the day on Friday and picks out a likely improver for William Haggas.
Sporting Life Daily Nap, Friday May 24
Swansdown was the subject of a major gamble on her final start at two and duly delivered a much improved performance in chasing home Fitwood Star at Wolverhampton.
It was a notable moment in that she was Luca Cumani's final of a long and distinguished training career and she can get her 2019 campaign off to a winning start in the Join Racing TV Now Handicap at Haydock.
She's only two pounds higher than at Dunstall Park and is bred to be much better than a 65-rated filly at three. She looks certain to thrive over middle-distances this term and new trainer William Haggas his his team ticking over nicely.
There are more experienced and battle-hardened rivals in here but none with the scope for potential improvement of the selection who is taken to score at the main expense of Highwaygrey who caught the eye at Beverley last time.
