Scu Says “Streets of Promise is my best ride of the day”

2.05 Haydock – Twenty Eight Guns

Twenty Eight Guns won well enough at Fakenham the time before last. I was a little bit disappointed with her last time. It’s a case of the softer the ground the better for her. She’d have a little chance.

3.15 Haydock – Abracadabra Sivola

David runs Abracadabra Sivola in the 3.15 and David Noonan rides. He wouldn’t be the most consistent horse and can throw in the odd stinker. He disappointed in this race last year off the back of a win, and is an enigmatic character. He handles most ground and he has won at Haydock so it depends what side of bed he gets out of

3.50 Haydock – Whatsthatallabout

Whatsthatallabout disappointed at Exeter and she has to bounce back to form. They are calling it Good to Soft ground and she’s one horse that wouldn’t want it to get any softer. She’s actually my only ride of the day that I don’t want more rain for.

4.25 Haydock – Southfield Royale

Southfield Royale has run a couple of good races around Haydock this season. He’s a horse that on his best form would have a great chance but I’ve been saying that for a while with him as I’ve been riding him all season. Based on his second to Eminent Poet, a horse of Venetia’s who has won again recently; you’d have to give him a good chance. He will handle the conditions; I just hope he can run back to that form.

5.00 Haydock – Two Smokin Barrels

I was pleased with Two Smokin Barrels when she won at Wincanton The second horse has come out and franked the form. She was unlucky not to win the other day. She is in a rich vein of form at the moment and she will relish the conditions. She has a good chance. My only concern would be the trip and whether it’s a bit on the sharp side for her.

5.35 Haydock – Streets of Promise

Streets of Promise ran the best race of her season last time. The step up to 3 miles and 4 furlongs will really suit her. I would go as far as to say she’s my best ride of the day. She must go well.
