As normal a very busy Saturday with no less than seven meetings .Haydock stages the feature card in Britain with the highlight being the group one Betfred Sprint Cup at 3.35 which looks wide open with 16 runners going to post .Also very decent card at Leopardstown in Ireland featuring the Irish champion stakes .
Plenty choice on Saturday with so many meetings,though going concentrate on the 1 mile listed race at Haydock 4.40
1 MILE 2-Y-0 LISTED STAKES HAYDOCK 4.40
CALEDONIAN SPRING : Big improver since stepping up in trip ,won hot maiden at Ascot in July beating Mehdi by 1.25 lenghs ,that looks very decent form with second going on to win big sales race next time at Newmarket .Finished good fourth last time in group 3 Acomb stakes at York finishing strongly after not getting the clearest of runs.Should be suited by this longer trip.
VERDICT: Good looking 1 mile listed race for 2 years with some top stables represented.
Both Stipulate and Martin Chuzzlewit are open to plenty improvement after winning decent maidens last time ,though both will need to improve to win this listed contest .
Cruis finished good second last time in nursery handicap at York off mark 86 and will be suited by this longer trip .Looks open to plenty improvement and should be thereabouts.
CALEDONIAN SPRING is 6LB clear on official handicap ratings (97),and has proven form in group company .Will be suited dropping into listed company and looks good value at around 4-1 mark.
