The Punt Daily: Tom Collins with two to follow on Tuesday

William Haggas: trainer of Alexanderthegreat
1 of 1


Alexanderthegreat(5.00 Newbury)

Showed little on three runs in novice company earlier this season and was subsequently gelded by William Haggas. Still looked green when a seven-length fourth on handicap debut behind a Sir Mark Prescott improver, but improved dramatically for the step up to 1m4f when getting the hang of things late and running down another Prescott inmate. His final burst was really impressive and he came from a very unpromising position to run down the short-priced favourite to win cosily by the line. Haggas fits him with first-time cheekpieces to keep his eye on the ball, but he has a nice racing weight of just 8st 5lb and should follow up under a penalty.


Miss Serenity(1.45 Newbury)

When asked for my two-year-old to follow this season for a Racing Post feature I put up Hugo Palmer's Miss Serenity, and I'm hopeful she can get off the mark at the second time of asking. She shaped with plenty of promise on her debut at Newmarket last month and was travelling the best of the 11-strong field as they entered the final two furlongs. Having briefly got within a length of the leaders after a big move from the rear of the field, her effort flattened out in the closing stages and it's not surprise to see her dropped back in trip. William Haggas' Magnetic Charm looks to hold some good form but I'm happy to take her on.
