Playtime At Haydock

My main focus this weekend has been on Dubai World Cup night, but I have written a separate article for that and today I need to switch my focus back to the UK where we have four UK meetings (two of them Premier fixtures and nothing south of Wolverhampton) plus two from Ireland to look at. Playful Saint looks an interesting option ahead of the Haydock opener at 2.05pm and at the 5/1 freely available as I write he looks a solid each way option, especially if you can find a quarter the odds a place to eke out a small profit if he places.

Very lightly raced for a nine-year-old with just the eight career starts he has clearly had his problems., but his recent return after over a year off at Stratford suggested he may start making up for lost time. Only beaten a neck by Milldam (who is 1lb worse for today), you don’t have to be overly enthusiastic to think he can strip a little bit fitter now, and with the Skelton yard in good form and the heavy ground ideal, we should get a decent run for our money.
