Todays Racing Tip – DEBECE
Time & Track – 2.00 Haydock (12/05)
Best Odds – 5/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 3pt win
Returned from a lengthy absence when fourth at the Grand National meeting last month where he led until just before the last over a slightly longer trip. Prior to that break he’d finished a half-length third behind 155-rated The Worlds End in a Grade 1 after winning in great style by 19-lengths at Newbury. Been give four weeks to recover from the exertions of that reappearance run and from the same mark could be very dangerous especially if able to dictate from the front again.
Result – Lost

Time & Track – 4.20 Haydock (12/05)
Best Odds – 9/2 @ Betfair
Stake – 2pt win
Analysis – 3/4 of career wins so far have come over this seven-furlong trip with best performances on quicker ground which he’ll encounter today. Recent outing after a winter break was underwhelming but the longer trip in soft ground can be excused and now back in trip on much favourable conditions could see this five-year old continue progress made last year (won two listed events along with a close second in a Group 3).
Result – Won
Todays Racing Tip – OPTIMUS PRIME
Time & Track – 3.10 Haydock (12/05)
Best Odds – 9/1 @ Bet365
Stake – 1pt win
Analysis – Reverts back to hurdles for the first time since beaten 14-lengths in this contest last year from the same mark. The winner is now 22lbs worse off and he’s been running very well over fences (3 wins and a second behind Footpad). The Skelton yard has started the new campaign in flying form (29% strike-rate in past fortnight) and although a difficult race this six-year old is clearly progressive and should run his race.
Result – Lost
