Steve Hughes has a Thursday best bet at Haydock
A class 2 handicap at Haydock looks the best betting race of the day and that is the race I am concentrating on for Thursday. Our only bet on Tuesday, Soldier In Action was a winner (advised 3/1).
Haydock 4.40: Huge Future
Lightly raced in recent seasons, Huge Future has been kept in training by Godolphin and the hint should be taken at Haydock today.
He has not won since landing back to back successes in June 2016 at Newcastle and Newbury, but has raced only seven times since then. His first run back in the UK of 2018 came at Newmarket last month, where he proved he retains all his old ability when a close second to Saunter.
That was his first start for six months, so he is entitled to have come on for that. There are plenty of likely pacesetters in the line up, but Huge Future tends to like to come from just off the lead, so this race could play perfectly to his style of racing around this tight track.
1pt win – Huge Future – 4.40 Haydock – 7/2 general
