Three-pronged challenge at Haydock on Saturday

Tackling the M6 over Easter can be hazardous, so it will be an early start for the three horses Alan is sending up to Haydock on Saturday.

Alan said:”They are providing great prize money (five races worth £50k) and we always try and support the meeting, so, hopefully, we can get lucky somewhere along the way.

Awesome Rosie, who runs in the mares hurdle, won well at Sandown in December, but, returning after a break, she was too fresh at Kempton, where she raced with the choke out and didn’t quite get home.

Peggies Venture, who runs in the same race, also had a mid-season break after finishing second at Doncaster in early December, but this has been her target for some time and her recent third when she returned for a jumpers bumper at Kempton recently was very pleasing. The more the ground improves the better her chance.

Tara View, who goes for the stayers hurdle, would also benefit by the ground drying up, and this is her time of the year. She was a respectable third at Southwell in December and is a spring mare who has been waiting for the ground.”

On the Flat we have Inn The Bull going for the hat-trick at Kempton on Saturday, where Caspar The Club bids to build on his promising debut in the opening novice.

Inn The Bull’s last two wins were on the tapeta at Wolverhampton, but we don’t envisage the switch to polytrack being a problem, though he is climbing the weights after his successes at Dunstall Park.
