We are hoping for drying ground for Haydock on Saturday
Alan has a good recent record at Haydock’s valuable Challenger Series Final Day, celebrating victory with the likes of Willoughby Hedge, Mahlermade and Midnightreferendum.
And, while we are down in numbers with this year’s Easter Saturday attack, Alan is hopeful that we might come back down the M6 with some prize money, be it courtesy of Big Boy Bobby, Aldsworth or Pass The Love On.
Alan said:”The drier the ground the better Big Boy Bobby’s prospects are in the two-mile hurdle as his chance had gone when it poured with rain throughout the afternoon before his race at Fakenham last month.
“We had given Big Boy Bobby a break after his second at Kempton on Boxing Day, and he strengthened up during that time, so we are ignoring that subsequent run and hoping that he can outrun his odds.
“Similarly, any improvement in the ground would suit Aldsworth, who runs in the novice handicap hurdle. He benefited from a step up in trip when an improved third last time out at Taunton, where the fitting of cheekpieces also helped.
“Pass The Love On, who runs in the mares maiden hurdle, can build on her second at Huntingdon, though she is likely to do better when she goes handicapping.”
