RACE PREVIEWS & TIPS (THURSDAY)

15:20 Haydock

Alpine Mistral has been in fantastic form over the summer, posting four wins in a row over differing trips and on differing surfaces/ground conditions, and was last seen just a week ago with a commanding victory over todays' trip in soft ground at Newmarket. She is up against better opposition and has to carry a 6lbs penalty today, however doesn't yet look to have reached her peak and has both ground and trip in her favour so looks worth sticking with here especially given the recent form of the stable.

Polyphony proved her stamina over this trip with victory at Doncaster last time out, however all career wins have come on good or faster ground, while Sun Bear won well last time out but that victory came over a mile and a previous effort over ten furlongs on the all-weather was a little disappointing.
