SOLO SAXOPHONE (12.45) bounced back to form with a vengeance at Thirsk last week and can defy a penalty at Haydock.
He ran out a wide-margin winner at the north Yorkshire track on his first run for Ben Haslam and although Solo Saxophone has another four furlongs to cover it is worth noting he was twice successful over hurdles at longer distances for previous trainer Dan Skelton. The six-year-old son of Frankel is preferred to prolific hurdles winner Snookered.
SOOTABILITY (3.45) made the William Haggas-trained favourite Nkosikazi pull out all the stops at Redcar seven days ago and Richard Fahey’s filly can strike while the iron is hot. She is due to go up 3lb so remains well treated.
