Amour Propre will relish the quick going at Haydock and looks a solid bet at 15/8 to make a winning reappearance in the feature race at 8.00.
Henry Candy’s charge doesn’t stand much racing, but has won 5 of his 13 starts and looked better than ever when landing a Group 3 at the Curragh on his final start last season.
He travelled strongly and quickened up well to beat Sole Power by 1 3/4 lengths that day and that form looks strong in the context of this contest.
The six-year-old is officially rated 5lb and upwards above his six rivals this evening, and another plus is that all his best form is on quick ground.
He also has a terrific record when running fresh, and with conditions clearly in his favour is going to take the world of beating in this listed contest.
I thought he would be around 6/4 shot, so at 15/8 with Coral he looks a bit of value.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 4pts win Amour Propre (15/8 Coral)
