15:50 Haydock – Sainted (BEST ODDS 4/6 with Paddy Power)
Sainted wasn’t disgraced when running in a Group 3 race last time out, and this is a massive step down in class for this filly. She is a distance winner and still looks very well in at a mark of 91. Her trainer has a strike rate of 25% over the last fortnight. This horse just looks a cut above anything else that is going to run in the field. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the price gets shorter as we get closer to the race time. To have had excuses (didn’t have a clear run) for not getting even closer to the winner last time out and still not be top weight here makes me think that there’s little in the way of this horse being back in the winner’s enclosure come Thursday afternoon.
