Haydock Tips: Mjjack
Won on heavy going at Doncaster, showing a decent turn of foot under the circumstances. Races in same grade with likely same conditions.
Conditions a liable to be very test coming the 4.40 Haydock and being proven in soft/heavy conditions is a massive asset.
Mijack fulfils the brief on account of his win on heavy going at Doncaster and the 5lbs hike in the weights might not be enough to stop this lightly raced colt.
At Doncaster, mindful of the conditions, the jockeys didn’t go much of a gallop early on and the race developed into something of a (slow motion) sprint finish. Mijack let Musawaat get first run but still reeled him in, running the fastest closing sectional in the race.
After adjusting for pace I gave Mijack and adjusted speed rating of 94, that is influenced by the heavy going but with the same conditions forecast he could double up.
