The Sky Bet Sunday Series has proved to be an excellent innovation on the whole, with good prize money attracting big fields and competitive racing, therefore it is hardly a surprise that the races in the series have already thrown up a decent number of subsequent winners.
I expect that theme to continue following the meeting at Haydock on Sunday and with that idea in mind, all of the suggestions to add to your racingtv.com tracker this week come from that fixture.
Trainer: Rod Millman.
It seemed an advantage to be drawn high in the opening sprint handicap and from stall four, Four Adaay seemed inconvenienced.
Unable to get a tow into the race on the far side, she still impressed with how she travelled and ran well to finish sixth, beaten less than three lengths.
She had also ended up being marooned away from the action at York on her penultimate start, so she has had a valid excuse in more competitive races than she has been contesting on her past couple of starts and I suspect she’s still well handicapped.
A winner on soft ground at Goodwood in May, deteriorating ground into the autumn won’t inconvenience her and she can provide her underrated stable with another winner before the season ends.
Trainer: Paul & Oliver Cole.
In a race dominated by those coming from towards the back of the field, Subtle Beauty managed to fare best of those ridden close to the pace and is worth marking up.
Some of her early summer form reads pretty well and she should be up to defying her current mark, especially if getting the chance to dominate in a smaller field.
Trainer: Ed Bethell.
Probably the most obvious eyecatcher of the day as he charged home from an unpromising position to hit the line with more to give.
Almost last at the two-furlong pole, he switched right at that point and finished off very well, but the front pair had already secured first run in a race where the tempo had not been that strong.
This run suggests his opening mark of 75 is a lenient one and with less competitive races open to him as well, he appeals as the type to progress and improve his rating.
Trainer: James Ferguson.
Snowalot has already appeared in this column after his second in what proved to be a very good race at Sandown in July and, having won since at Goodwood, he remains one to keep onside, despite finishing fourth at Haydock.
Dropped out in a race where the pace held up well, he travelled strongly but made his ground into a quickening tempo up the straight, and ultimately did well to get as close as he did.
Still well handicapped, he’s going to win more races in the near future.
Away from the Sky Bet Sunday Series, Rosa Mystica was very strong in the market at Salisbury on Thursday and may have had a valid excuse for failing to justify that support.
With a big track bias at play, those racing towards the far side of the track appeared to be at a significant disadvantage and, having raced on that part of the track, it is probably a run that can be ignored from a generally consistent filly.
