Racing Gossip: Trackman is back with the latest paddock talk as he lines up some bets at Haydock on Saturday – The Sun

THIS is a funny old world.

Meghan and her playmate Harry have started making kids TV.

And William Muir has found himself training the St Leger favourite Pyledriver. Now Willie has always been one of life’s optimists.

In fact, he lost a job at Snappy Snaps because he couldn’t see the negatives.

But the man can train and hes adamant his stablestar will win at Donny next week if Martin Dwyer can convince him to stay.

Talking about stars, you won’t find a bigger headline grabber than Enable.

John Gosden’s show-stopper is in a different parish to her six rivals in the September Stakes (2.35) at Kempton.

She will be long odds-on, but William Hill go 2-1 about her winning by five lengths or more which adds a bit of spice to the contest.

By the way, give Specsavers a bell if you missed Uncle Bryn winning by half the track at Kempton on Tuesday.

This fella was well-punted and “never out of second gear” according to Robert Havlin.

Now, Rab knows his onions and told anyone who would listen that Uncle Bryn is very much an A-stream student at Gosden’s academy. Take the hint and stick him in your notebook.

Meanwhile, those `in-running players are going to extreme lengths to get their thrills while our racecourses remain closed to punters.

Apparently one heavy-hitter has built a portacabin in his back garden and whacked an antennae bigger than the Hubble Telescope on top.

This Heath Robinson contraption helps him intercept more signals than the KGB and nick a split-second advantage over his pals.

That sounds decidedly iffy and could go horribly Pete Tong if the bloke in question happens to live anywhere near air traffic control at Heathrow.

That’s only a stone’s throw from Sandown where there were whispers for half a dozen horses in a red-hot nursery on Monday.

Richard Hannon’s Bagara (12-1 to 9-2) was best bet when the music stopped and might have collected but for being body-slammed when the gates opened.

He represents a shrewd bunch and compensation awaits.

But it wasn’t all bad news for the punters and Mr Chau (13-2 to 11-4) landed a touch for Michael Scudamore at Lingfield on Wednesday.

`Scu’ Junior punches above his weight over jumps and is keen to pinch a decent handicap on the Flat with this front-runner.

The Cesarewitch is right up his alley and winning jock Jim Crowley certainly didn’t put connections off having a crack at that marathon.


KHALOOSY (1.45 Haydock) hated the quick ground at Goodwood last time and deserves another chance.

Finally, the Sprint Cup (3.25) at Haydock is harder to fathom than a Donald Trump speech.

But there has been a massive ante-post move for Tim Easterby’s soft ground specialist Art Power.

This big grey ran as if he was wearing lead clogs when dropped back to 5f at York last month.

Connections are have worn the carpet out trying to understand that run but are confident we will see a different horse today.

Trackman is in association with William Hill.
