RED DEREK (1.45) threatened to win on a couple of occasions last month and his turn may be at hand at in the 1m 2f handicap at Haydock.
He split Potenza (runs 5.15) and Baryshnikov here on good to soft and Baryshnikov may have caught Highwaygrey with a clear run at Pontefract last week. Red Derek handled good to firm well enough when third at Doncaster and his rider’s 7lb claim can swing things his way.
NATTY NIGHT (5.15) is out again quickly under a penalty after digging deep to wear down Zuba at Newmarket on Saturday and is trading at attractive each-way odds. The quick ground seemed ideal for Natty Night so underfoot conditions should be perfect. Course and distance winner Dreamweaver has been in peak form along with Songkran and Potenza, and it should develop into an exciting finish.
Ex-Irish BOLLY BULLET (4.15) ran second to Alibaba at Yarmouth and the winner has since followed up. Ben Curtis is a good booking by trainer George Scott and Bolly Bullet will go off at another each-way price, with Chepstow winner Newton Jack sure to attract support.
