14/1

14:40 Haydock - Forest Fairy @ 13/2

We haven’t had a three-year-old winner of the bet365 Lancashire Oaks in more than a decade but that might change with Forest Fairy.

The 12lb those from the Classic generation receive at this time of year remains a real asset and Forest Fairy has been underestimated in the market.

She might have failed to live up to expectations when seventh in the Oaks last time, but Epsom isn’t for everyone, and she had only made her debut barely three months earlier. 

Forest Fairy should prefer getting on this more conventional track and her previous defeat of Ribblesdale winner Port Fairy in the Cheshire Oaks reads well. 

She remains a top prospect and Rossa Ryan might have struggled to do the weight of 8st 9lb, so I wouldn’t read too much into his decision to ride the selection’s older stablemate Lady Boba instead. 

15:15 Haydock - L’astronome @ 50/1

L’astronome has been ignored by the layers in the bet365 Old Newton Cup but could be worth chancing.

Backing Hugo Palmer’s 15 Haydock runners this season to £1 stakes would have given you three winners, three seconds and three thirds and a profit of £28.50.

Palmer’s record when teaming up with Jason Hart is also impressive. The pair are 13-57 (23 percent, +£37.62 level-stakes profit) over the past five years and their latest representative L’astronome might have been primed for this at one of the trainer’s local tracks.

He helped force too strong a pace in a classy running of the Ormonde Stakes at Chester landed by Point Lonsdale when last seen and will be freshened up by a 58-day break.

The handicapper has dropped him to a mark of 100 and that looks a tempting rating in light of his Listed third to Al Qareem and Bluestocking on his stable debut four starts back. A truly run 1m4f should suit him ideally.    

16:25 Haydock - Mirsky @ 14/1

The final runner I’m sweet on at Haydock is Mirsky in the Never Ordinary At bet365 Handicap for David O’Meara, who is going to get a decent prize out of this horse soon.

There are sometimes handicapping overreactions for good efforts in defeat in Royal Ascot handicaps and Mirsky has been eased 3lb in the weights despite winning his group of two in the Royal Hunt Cup on the far side when all the action unfolded up the middle of the track.

There was similar promise in Mirsky’s introduction for O’Meara in the Thirsk Hunt Cup in May and he is well treated on the pick of his French form.

Naturally, this is a weaker contest than the Royal Hunt Cup, and he gives the impression 7f could be his optimum trip.
