Richard Fahey is always a trainer to follow at this track and he has a strong hand in this race with HOME CUMMINS and Innocent Touch. The former won over C&D a year ago from just 3lb lower in the ratings and she has run well on multiple occasions this season without winning. Innocent Touch is a consistent type who rarely runs a bad race and he could reward each-way support once again tonight. Others to note are Boots And Spurs, Calder Prince and Candelisa.
CALDER PRINCE has gone up 4 lb for Haydock but remains with plenty of handicapping scope based on last year's form and could be the way to go, particularly with Paddy Pilley taking a handy 5 lb off. Kharbetation has had a few issues at the start but will be a likely big threat if he does go in the stalls, while Innocent Touch is a reliable type who is likely to be in the shake-up again.
