Templegate (The Sun)
1.55 Goodwood - FABRICATE (8/1 bet365) won a Group 3 at Windsor last season and he was successful on his only previous visit to this track. Perhaps he’s not been at his best so far this year but he did come up against top-class Crystal Ocean at Sandown last time out. This is more his level and this race should be run to suit him.

2.15 Haydock - LUCKY DEAL (7/2 William Hill) had little chance when dropped in from a wide draw on testing ground in the Chester Cup last time out. He’s much better judged on his second behind stablemate Making Miracles – winner of the Chester Cup – at Ripon last month.

2.30 Goodwood - ALHAKMAH (9/1 William Hill) has been improving steadily in novice races. She was only beaten a neck on her debut at this track last season and there was a lot to like about the way she dispatched odds-on Tapisserie at Lingfield a couple of weeks ago.

2.50 Haydock - AWEEDRAM (15/2 Paddy Power) kicked off his life in handicaps by beating subsequent Doncaster scorer Archaeology at Newmarket. The small field was never going to help him when sent to Ascot a couple of weeks ago and he did pull way too hard in the early stages so it was a serious performance to master smart prospect I’m Available close home.

3.05 York - ENBIHAAR (7/4 Ladbrokes) should have the last laugh in the William Hill Bronte Cup. John Gosden’s hope was promising last season. She always looked sure to do much better this season and her Goodwood win in a Listed contest confirmed that. It’s fair to say she had the run of the race out in front but York usually suits prominent racers and the return to 1m6f will certainly help.

3.25 Haydock - The last three winners of the Armstrong Aggregates Sandy Lane Stakes went to win Group 1 prizes and I wouldn’t bet against CALYX (1/5 Ladbrokes) extending that sequence. Of course, he’s got to win today first but that should be a formality. He looked a potential superstar when storming to victory from an unhelpful draw in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot.

3.35 Curragh - SKARDU (9/1 William Hill) should cut the Tattersalls Irish 2,000 Guineas down to size. He’s got more than four lengths to find with Magna Grecia having finished third in the Newmarket version of this Classic but that doesn’t tell the whole story.

3.45 York - Get stuck into EEH BAH GUM (17/2 Paddy Power). Tim Easterby’s speedster was probably undone by being draw right out on the stands’ side wing when a good fourth behind stablemate Copper Knight in a similar race over this track and trip last week.

4.00 Haydock - BATTAASH (11/10 Paddy Power) gave weight away all round when getting up close home to beat Washington DC, Kachy and Mabs Cross in this race 12 months ago. The weights favour him today and Charlie Hills’ sizzling speedster has a great record when returning from a break.
