On Saturday we have decent looking card from Haydock Park ,featuring three quality group races .Going concentrate on the seven furlong Timeform Jury Stakes at 3.10 .
11 runners declared for high quality looking 7 furlong group three contest at Haydock on ground described as good/soft .This looks competitive race on official BHA figures ,with only 2LB between the four main contenders .Adaay , Breton Rock , Home Of The Brave & So Beloved .
ADAAY : High quality 4-Y-0 colt ,winning 5 out 12.Showed some useful form last season ,including winning the 6F (G2) Sandy Lane stakes here at Haydock & 7F Hungerford Stakes at Newbury in August .No show on seasonal reappearance in Bet365 Mile at Sandown ,though should come on for that run, and will be suited with this drop in class ,over this 7F trip.
BRETON ROCK :Consistent sort , winning 7 out 21 (All wins coming on G/S or Soft) ,though hasn't won since August 2014 .Showed some decent placed form last season ,including finishing excellent 2ND in G2 Dubai Challenge Stakes at Newmarket in October .Will be suited by any. rain.Each-way claims .
HOME OF THE BRAVE :Useful front runner , Won 3 out 9 ,including bolting up in the 7F Richard 111 Listed stakes at Leicester last month .Also an impressive winner of (G3) Minstrel Stakes at Curragh last season.Subsequently disqualified for banned substance .Should go well from the front .
SO BELOVED :Dual C&D winner at Haydock ,including winning listed race earlier this month at Haydock .Also won the G3 Supreme Stakes at Goodwood in August & finished close 4TH in Dubai Challenge Stakes at Newmarket in October ,finishing just behind Breton Rock .Goes particularly well on easy ground . Should be thereabouts .
VERDICT : Home Of The Brave will be popular ,after bolting up in listed race last time at Leicester on easy ground, and has good record over 7 furlongs .Has to be respected ,though this looks much stronger contest, and odds around 7-2 look short enough .
ADAAY showed some useful form last season , including winning the group two Sandy Lane stakes on this card last year.Also escapes group two penalty for winning Hungerford stakes ,the return to this 7 furlong trip, on easy ground should be ideal .Odds around 7-1 look decent each-way value .
