BLISTERING BOB (4.40) seemed to be transformed by the application of a hood when scooting up by more than two lengths on his last visit to Salisbury and a 4lb rise isn't enough to prevent a follow-up over course and distance if he is in the same mood.
Roger Teal's gelding was a 20-1 shot that day but will go off at shorter odds, especially after runner-up Craneur ran so well in defeat behind Skyman at Sandown last Friday.
SPECIALISE (3.20) has a good chance of upsetting odds-on favourite Illumined in the 1m 2f fillies' handicap at Haydock.
Roger Varian's grey beat two useful types in Hallalulu and Moll Davis at Lingfield in June on ground described as good to soft. Similar underfoot conditions will prevail this afternoon and she is a bit of value to see off John Gosden's talented Illumined. The pair have the race between them.
The aforementioned HALLALULU (6.50) has her first run for Mark Johnston since leaving the William Haggas yard and must go close in the 1m 2f fillies' handicap at Lingfield. She seemed to find the extended 1m 3f trip at Haydock just too far when a fading third behind State Of Affair and subsequent dual winner Starczewski.
