Trainer Tim Easterby has his team in terrific form and his Dance King looks worth a wager at 7/1 in the 1.55 at Haydock today.
The seven-year-old got back to winning ways last time out at Carlisle when digging deep to beat Fleeting Spiit by 1/2 a length in a competitive 14-runner affair
Dance King has been raised just 3lb for that victory and that looks more than fair.
The gelding ran a blinder to be third to Banksea at Pontefract 14 months ago off a mark of 89, so a revised rating of 87 should not be beyond him.
Dance King will also get maximum assistance in the saddle from Rachel Richardson in this lady riders’ handicap and everything looks in place for a huge run.
Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Dance King (7/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
