The Wokingham winner, Deacon Blues, heads Coral’s betting for Saturday’s Haydock Sprint Cup, following the latest entry stage for the Group One contest. Dream Ahead is the 9-2 second favourite, ahead of Hoof It at 11-2.
“Deacon Blues may be tackling Group One company for the first time, but his runaway Group Three success at the Curragh last time suggested the step up in class would be well within his grasp, especially in a season where a sprinter has yet to stamp their authority on the division,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
