15:00 Haydock– Bristol De Mai (BEST ODDS 6/4 with William Hill)
I can’t look beyond Bristol De Mai for this race and now that Sizing John is out of the picture, I think that he deserves favouritism after what was an impressive Grade 2 win last time out. There are also clear reasons not to back every other horse in the field. Cue Card is ageing and doesn’t jump well, Outlander’s mark looks very high, Tea For Two was very poor last time out and the two remaining horses in the field look out of their depth at this level in my opinion. Bristol De Mai is only one of two horses in the field to have won at Haydock before and I’m backing him to win this one.
