Will Irish Eyes Be Smiling At Haydock?


Three and a half miles plus on heavy ground is going to become a war of attrition regardless, and we can but hope that every runner returns to their stables safe and sound. All things seem possible here with an 18/1 winner last year and a 33/1 shot in 2020, and as we haven’t seen a winning favourite in the last 10 renewals, it is very much a case of punter beware.

Venetia Williams has won three of those, making both Chambard and Fontaine Collonges big priced alternatives for those who like that sort of thing, but the top six in the market have dominated this over the years and may well do so again. 

Yeah Man sits on the very edge of that criteria for Gavin Cromwell but I am hoping he is supported before the off, with his trainer seemingly fairly sweet on his chances. The heavy ground is an unknown, and he can get behind in a race and have to play catch up, but he stays forever which will be needed in these testing conditions, and I can see him getting up late on to win going away, getting off the mark over fences in the process.
