2.45 Haydock – RUN TO FREEDOM (2pt win – 6/1 Unibet, 5/1 generally)

Commanche Falls was beaten by a head at 20-1 when we were on at Newmarket last time but I’m going to desert him in favour of RUN TO FREEDOM, generously priced at around 5-1 for this 6f contest. Henry Candy’s five-year-old had today’s odds-on favourite Creative Force behind him when a 150-1 runner-up to Kinross at Ascot on Champions Day and his 6f record below Grade 3 level reads 1211 (3-4), with the defeat by a head.

3.45 Ascot – SHAHBAZ (2pt win – 7/2 generally)

SHAHBAZ improved for first-time cheekpieces when scoring over 1m1f at Newmarket last backend and ran a huge race over 1m2f at the same venue on his return to action, taking up the running too soon into the headwind and fading into third place behind two hold-up horses. Trainer Charlie Fellowes is in profit to the tune of £86.50 to a £1 level stake at SP with his Ascot handicappers (eight winners from 58 runners) and a more patient ride will see him hard to beat.

4.55 Ascot – LA MAQUINA (1pt win – 10 Bet365, 8/1 generally)

Veteran LA MAQUINA looks very intriguing on his debut for in-form Harry Eustace. He was always best fresh when trained by George Baker, recording form figures in handicaps in Britain, after a break of at least six weeks, of 6116151485 (4-10). He’s been rested since late November and a strongly-run 6f could prove ideal.
