News of the early action from Haydock Park, where Wall Of Fire justified strong market support to take the opener.

Wall Of Fire justified strong market support to take the opening the bet365 Handicap at Haydock.

Backed down to 4/1 from 6/1 in a tightly-knit field of five, Wall Of Fire was produced to challenge the 11/8 favourite Theatre Assessed and got up in the last 100 yards under James Doyle to score going away by two and a quarter lengths.-

Last seen finishing unplaced behind Defrocked in the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot, Hugo Palmer’s colt appreciated the step up to an extended mile and a quarter to win for the first time since his debut almost a year ago.

Doyle said: “I had plenty of confidence from Hugo. He thought on pedigree he would cope with the ground.

“They got racing a fair way out and I was a little outpaced, but in the last furlong he started to draw away.

“It was a good performance and he took some pulling up as well.”
