Storm fancied to blow away Haydock rivals


Stormy Weather is potentially thrown-in at the weights in the opener at Haydock (12.40) and at 5/2 rates the best bet on the card.

The former Howard Johnson trained gelding is now 10lb lower than when fifth in last years Fred Winter at the Cheltenham Festival and absolutely revels in the heavy conditions he gets today.

Now in the care of the ultra shrewd Brian Ellison, the five-year-old has been out of his depth in two graded races won by Champion Hurdle candidates Overturn and Grandouet and takes a massive drop in class to a more suitable level this afternoon.

He really does look incredibly well treated and with conditions in his favour and he will never get a better opportunity to register an overdue success.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 5pts win Stormy Weather (5/2 Betfred – BOG, Coral, Totesport)
