3.50 HAYDOCK 6F GROUP ONE BETFRED SPRINT CUP
LEGAL FORCE : High class 6/7 Furlong colt , won back to back group one's this season the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot & July Cup at Newmarket on fast ground .However all his best form has been on fast ground.Soft ground looks is big concern .
GORDON LORD BYRON :Useful soft ground performer ,won group one Prix De La Foret at Longchamp last October on heavy ground .Also finished good second in this race last year on fast ground .Should go well with ground conditions in his favour .
SLADE POWER : Improving sort ,won twice at Curragh this season in group three company .Also finished good third behind Legal Force in July Cup at Newmarket .Will need bounce back after disappointing run in group one Nunthorpe at York last time,though will be suited by ground conditions .
VERDICT : With ground conditions in his favour GORDON LORD BYRON should go well here.Ran excellent second in this race last year ,on ground that wouldn't have been ideal .Having won twice on heavy ground any more rain will suit.Odds around 9-2 look decent value .
Of the others Garswood has been well supported in recent days and will be suited by ground conditions ,though all his best form has been over 7 furlongs and will need more improvement to win in group one company .
Slade Power has each-way claims on his third in July Cup, with ground conditions likely to suit and could go well at decent odds.
Legal Force has form with cut in the ground ,though all his group form has been on fast ground and looks worth taking on at around 3-1 .
