Haydock’s card opens with three maidens and the market should prove the best guide.

It will be interesting to see how much confidence there is behind Hugo Palmer’s Star Archer in the 1m maiden (3.00pm) as he’s gone off at short prices on both his starts to date, only to let backers down by finishing second. He’s clearly got talent but he found precious little for pressure when odds-on at Windsor last time, getting stuffed by three and a bit lengths, and I’d be very wary of supporting him here at shortish odds.

On the other hand, I could easily be persuaded to part with some cash for the Charlie Appleby-trained ALQAMAR. He’s an unraced son of Dubawi but the stable juveniles usually know their job first time up and, indeed, they have been in flying form in 2016, with 20 winners on the board from 66 runners (30%). Many of these have been at prohibitive odds, admittedly, but this Derby entry should be available at a backable price due to the presence of the Palmer runner and he may well prove good enough.
