1:35 Haydock - Fall Of Rome

It is fair to say Fall Of Rome has been quite unlucky in his short career so far, but he should ignite his spark in the EBF Stallions Maiden Stakes.

Charlie Appleby probably thought he had a nice juvenile on his hands when he took him to Ascot for his debut in early May.

However, he ran green through the early stages and by the time the penny dropped the bird had flown and he finished second.

Fall Of Rome was unsurprisingly priced to go one better at Goodwood on his second start, but he again fell this time in third behind Masekela.

By Frankel, Fall Of Rome has only raced on soft ground to date, so Appleby will be hoping he sees a different turnout when he encounters a slightly quicker surface on Merseyside.

2:10 Haydock - Side Shot

Another son of Frankel, Side Shot, looks the one to be dominant on in the Watch On Racing TV Handicap.

Trained by John and Thady Gosden, he was a winner at Chester last time out when it looked as if he may be an unlucky loser.

All dressed up with nowhere to go turning into the short straight, he displayed an impressive turn of foot when the gap finally appeared and won by a neck.

Because of the small margin of victory, the handicapper could only put him up 2lb, which should not prevent him from winning again.

Other Haydock hunches: 1.00 Sound Reason, 2.45 La Pulga, 3.20 Baby Steps, 3.55 Chalk Stream, 4.30 Lady Pendragon.

1:15 Yarmouth - Genesius

Sir Mark Prescott's Genesius can defy the odds in the opening Quinnbet Best Odds Guaranteed "Hands And Heels" Apprentice Handicap.

A winner by half a length at Goodwood three weeks ago, he won going away in the manner of a horse on an upward curve.

2:20 Yarmouth - Alflaila

It is fair to say the Owen Burrows-trained Alflaila created a brilliant impression when making a winning debut at Salisbury.

He looked positive early on, and most from this yard tend to take a good step forward from their initial experience, so that fact he was value for a good bit more than the half-length he won well.

Alflaila can add to his debut win in the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes at Yarmouth.

Other possible punts at Yarmouth include: 1.45 Beowulf, 2.55 Electric Love, 3.30 Storm Catcher, 4.05 Coverham, 4.40 Out Of The East, 5.10 Epic Express.

2:30 Perth - Golden Taipan

The best bet at Perth is looking likely to be Fergal O'Brien's Golden Taipan in the Watch RacingTV Now Chase.

Other Perth punts: 1.20 Calagogo, 1.55 Gripper, 3.05 For Three, 3.40 As You Like, 4.15 Hitman Fred, 4.50 Wise Coco.

6:38 Epsom - Indian Creek

Mick Channon's Indian Creak is up 4lb for winning at Windsor last time out, but that might not be enough to stop him following up in the Watchable Handicap.

Gelded after a busy three-year-old season, he won with a fair bit in hand and holds a Stewards' Cup entry.

Others to fancy at Epsom: 6.08 Arsonist, 7.08 Three Dons, 7.38 Tralee Hills, 8.08 Bad Company

6:53 Newbury - Auditor

Martyn Meade's Auditor can confirm debut promise with victory in the Compton Beauchamp Estates Ltd Novice Stakes.

Other Newbury selections: 5.53 Cherish, 6.23 Kindness, 7.23 Scampi, 7.53 Ice Station Zebra, 8.25 Mafia Power, 8.55 Silent Flame.
