JUICESTORM VERDICT: Some serious speedsters on show here. Last year’s winner – BATTAASH – will be all the rage and is rated 8lbs higher than anything else in the field so it’s hard to look beyond him again. He’s had wind surgery over the winter and having won first time out for the last two seasons suggests his 230-day break isn’t too much of a worry. Jim Crowley rides and if back to his best should win. Mabs Cross supporters will have hope though as she beat the selection in France last season and also comes here fit from a win at HQ. She’s a very consistent mare that will go lose again, but having to give 2lbs away to most of the others makes life harder. The speedy Kachy can take them along, but I’m not sure the open spaces of Haydock will suit – he seems better around a bend, where his pace can nick him a few more lengths. Alpha Delphini has run well in this race in the past and is another to consider but with 8lbs to find with the ‘Batman’ he’ll likely need a career-best to take this.
