Tote Scoop 6 analysis

Race 1: Haydock, 1.50

David Pipe’s team are in fine fettle and Umbrigado appeals as a six-year-old returning to action with scope for better this season. He ran well on this card last year over a longer trip and is a versatile sort and winner at this distance of 2m 3f. Fergus Gillard’s 7lb claim could also be a big help. 

There are lots of alternatives in a minefield of a race. Shakem Up'Arry made short work of his rivals on his return at Ffos Las. Ben Pauling’s charge goes handicapping from a mark of 130 and, if Kielan Woods can settle him just off the pace, he has a big challenge in him. 

Selections: No 5 Umbrigado, No 13 Shakem Up’Arry 

Race 2: Haydock, 2.25

Another baffling riddle. David Pipe has won this three times since 2010 and winning machine Main Fact cannot be ignored despite this career-high rating. He has been thriving on the Flat and is aiming to make it 9-9 this calendar year in both codes.

Royal Ascot winner Who Dares Wins has won from higher marks over hurdles in the past and is racefit. Alan King’s charge ought to see out 3m around here and is a solid proposition. 

Imperial Alcazar could be the fly in the ointment. He was 3-4 over timber last season, revels in the mud and should get this trip on his seasonal comeback for a trainer/jockey combo in top form. 

Selections: No 4 Main Fact, No 5 Who Dares Wins, No 10 Imperial Alcazar

Race 3: Haydock, 3.00

There are just five players for the big Grade 1 prize on offer at Haydock and Lostintranslation may become the latest repeat winner of the Betfair Chase. 

He swarmed all over two-time winner Bristol De Mai last year and his Cheltenham Gold Cup third (after wind surgery) was a new personal best. This track and the 3m 1½f trip are ideal for him to turn the tables on dual King George winner Clan Des Obeaux, having failed to fire on Boxing Day. 

Selection: No 5 Lostintranslation

Race 4: Ascot, 3.17

It’s only eight days since Magic Saint won at Cheltenham and this might come around too quickly from an increased mark. Henry De Bromhead’s only runner on this card is Abbey Magic, the mare who has won four of her five starts over fences in Ireland to date. She remains on the upgrade and can have a big say with Bryony Frost booked to ride.

Conditions won't be a worry for Kim Bailey’s First Flow on return and he also goes well fresh. There remains further scope in this prolific winner from a mark of 148.

Selections: No 4 First Flow, No 7 Abbey Magic

Race 5: Haydock, 3.35

Kings Monarch held off Financial Outcome at Ffos Las in October and Kerry Lee’s charge may hold sway again despite a 5lb rise. However, Financial Outcome isn’t discounted despite a poor run since at Wetherby, where he was undone by an error early. 

Don Poli, placed in a Cheltenham Gold Cup in his pomp, made a good fist of things on his first start for Dan Skelton’s team when fourth at Aintree recently. If he builds on that run, this marathon trip of 3m 4½f could be right up the street of a horse never noted for a change of gear. 

Selections: No 9 Kings Monarch, No 6 Don Poli

Race 6: Ascot, 3.50

There are a lot of promising newcomers in the bumper to conclude the card at Ascot and, most likely, the winner will come from that batch.

Nicky Henderson’s record in this sphere is formidable and, with Nico de Boinville doing the steering, Wraysford looks the pick of his pair, the other of which is Hamilton’s Fantasy. However the €105,000 Yeats gelding Wonderwall is from the family of Grade 1-winning chaser Riverside Theatre and rates an interesting contender. 

Selections: No 11 Wonderwall, No 12 Wraysford
