Ajman Princess has the quality to reign supreme over her rivals at Haydock

By Chris Wilson

Ajman Princess is likely to make no mistake in the Betway Pinnacle Stakes at Haydock.

Roger Varian's inmate is unbeaten this year and looked a cut above in a Listed race at Goodwood last month when she trounced a fair-looking field by upwards of five lengths.

The ground was fast that day, but she only succumbed to Even Song in a soft-ground Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot last year.

There is also a lot to like about Breton Rock in the Betway John of Gaunt Stakes.

David Simcock's chiselled seven-year-old has been a solid operator over the years, and this represents a very good opportunity.

The gelded son of Bahamian Bounty arrives on Merseyside in fine fettle after having finished third in the Lockinge at Newbury last month.
