Haydock Tip: Orvar
Drawn next to potential front-runner who could set up the race for him. Good reappearance run at Doncaster making eye-catching late progress. Record in class 3 turf sprints is 233811613.
Acclaim The Nation ran a really good race and a nice speed rating over course and distance a fortnight ago but he might find one too good again and set-up the race for the horse drawn beside him.
Orvar wins in his turn and that is usually in a class 3 contest. His record in this grade, on turf, over 5f is 233811613 and he shaped well on his season return at Doncaster. Not hard ridden, he stayed on well from the rear and that includes running into traffic. The strong pace at Doncaster might have flattered him visually but it showed his well-being.
Unusually Orvar has won for 7 different jockeys; James Doyle rarely rides for Paul Midgley but perhaps that is the logic to make it 8.
