Saturday's feature race, showing live on Channel 4 racing, is undoubtedly the 15:45 betfred.com Temple Stakes at Haydock Park. We've taken a look at the runners and riders to give you an idea of who we think is worth backing.
Current favourite Hot Streak has a lot going for him in this particular race. He showed very well against the old guard this time last year, when he took the win on soft ground. He impressed in the Palace House and King's Stand too, but did not progress strongly enough from there to warrant his position in the stakes in our opinion.
He managed a respectable third place on his return at Longchamps last time out, but all in all we're a little concerned that he might not have what it takes to land a back to back victory.
Nonetheless a lot of people disagree with us - the best place we found to back him was at BoyleSports, who are offering a decent 5/1.
A little further down the field Goldream comes into this race after an impressive win at Newmarket three weeks ago, beating Justice Day and Kingsgate Native to the victory. The steady progression shown last season certainly seems to be continuing this year, and although the Palace House renewal just won probably wasn't the strongest we've seen we think it's worth keeping an eye on Goldream for this one.
The best place we've found to back the win is at PaddyPower, who are offering a reasonable 6/1.
Looking a little further down the odds we've decided on Great Minds as our outside choice.
He's shown some excellent form of late, and his improvement continues judging by his Listed wins at Cork and Naas. We can't deny that this is a tougher event than either of those, and he prefers the ground soft so any improvement in the turf might be a worry. Nonetheless we think he's going to be there or thereabouts come the winning line, and when you can get him at 12/1 over at Coral we also think he's well worth a flutter each way.
