TODAY’S HIGHLIGHTED RUNNER

Hafeet Alain

6:30 Wolverhampton

“Hafeet Alain is really well in himself and has done well since his last race three weeks ago. This will be his first start on this surface so it will be interesting to see how he gets on but if running in a similar fashion to last time he will have a great chance.”
