Bryan Smart is another trainer going great guns right now and he looks to hold several chances today, with his pair of Musselburgh runners, Playtothewhistle (6.20) and Wotnot (7.50), expected to go close. However, his STRAIGHTOTHEPOINT makes more appeal as a value bet in the 5f handicap at Haydock (3.55pm) at double-figure odds and having been given a favourable mention in a recent Stable Tour.

Granted, plenty can be fancied in what is wide open heat, but the selection looked on good terms with himself when finishing runner-up in a fair sprint at Leicester 17 days ago. That run can be upgraded as he’d been off the track for over two months having, according to his trainer, pulled a shoe off when out in the field and pricked himself. Smart also said: “That was a very good run and he should step up on it, so I expect him to win again soon.”

While he’s never won over the minimum trip, he has has gone close over it on several occasions and if anything he appears to be getting faster with age, as he was prominent for most of the 6f at Leicester and led until inside the final furlong. Granted some luck in running then he should make a bold under Paul Mulrennan, who has a fair 16% strike rate on the stable runners with all his rides since 2012 yielding a whopping £1 level-stakes profit of £91.52.
