Jaunty Thor gets the day started off in the opening race of the card at Haydock, this represents a small drop in class compared to last time as well as him dropping back to the trip he was successful over both times he managed to get his head in front this season. We feel that all the conditions should be perfect for him and feel the application of cheekpieces might bring out the slight extra improvement needed in a competitive race.
We then move on to the stable star Rock Warbler who is back at his beloved Newcastle where he aims to make it 4 from 4 at the track since joining us. He is now up in grade but seems to keep on improving and taking the rises in class in his step. He is 6 lb higher than when victorious at the track last time but he won well there and we are confident he will put in a big showing.
