Racing: PET FANCY; Kathryn's a Haydock pin-up.

CANNY granny Mary Reveley sends just one horse across the Pennines to Haydock Park from her Saltburn base this afternoon and the journey can result in another early season strike for Kathryn's Pet.

For the past two years Mary has given her 'Pet' a quick trip up the road to Catterick and come back with the win money. But longer journeys are no trouble to this horse who rounded off last season with a convincing success at Newmarket.

She has kept on the move during the winter, picking up a decent prize at Kelso and although a disappointing favourite at Stratford last time out, is much better suited by this straight track than going flat out round those tight turns.

Indigo Jones and Enfilade are a couple of rivals who could test her this afternoon, but KATHRYN'S PET (3.15) will find today's weight of nine stone a feather burden compared to what she has been lumbered with over hurdles.

John Reid rides Enfilade and the evergreen jockey is out to keep up the winning momentum of his new job on SPIN A YARN (4.15).

Gentleman John spent most of last season nursing a broken leg, but made such an impact in his end-of-term comeback that he was snapped up to ride for the power-packed team owned by Maktoum Al Maktoum this season.

The new team gained instant success on Fine Melody at Lingfield earlier this week and there is plenty of potential in the Maktoum horses which are split between Ed Dunlop, Sir Michael Stoute and Barry Hills.

Track specialist JEMARO (3.45) looks the horse to be on in the Intercity Chase.

He loves jumping round here, with the big fences suiting his bold, attacking style and course win number four is on the cards.

Old rivals Deano's Beeno and Princeful clash in the Grosvenor Casinos Long Distance Hurdle at Ascot, but Princeful is having his first run back after injury.

They could both be beaten by another course winner TEEATRAL (3.05) who was pulled out of Cheltenham at the last minute.

SIR DANTE (2.30) has faced a couple of stiff tasks since his runaway Kempton win over Christmas and he may well find Wise King, who won this last year, easier meat, although Lord York will not go away without a fight.
