Will it rain, won’t it rain? Who knows.
The tipsters have pretty much decided that Limato wins Haydock’s Sprint Cup on Saturday IF the ground stays on the good side, but it may be worth keeping an eye on the Lancashire skyline before the runners file to post for the final race on the box.
But by then, Paddy, Tom, and our secret trader will be so long under cover in the champagne tent that it won’t bother them, while Mick Fitz will be too busy sorting out any passive-aggressive behaviour from the rest of the Ch4 team since getting the ITV gig to let it bother him.
Either way, what we want is winners on a day that offers a few decent graded races as well as some tricky handicaps to try and nick a few quid.
