Mick Appleby is hoping for good ground as he prepares his progressive young speedster Danzeno for the Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock on Saturday.

Mick Appleby is hoping for good ground as he prepares his progressive young speedster Danzeno for the Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock on Saturday.

The going at the Merseyside venue was described as good to soft on the straight course on Tuesday morning and with dry weather forecast, the track should continue to dry out as the big day approaches.

"I just hope it keeps drying out. If it was soft ground I wouldn't be running him," said Appleby.

"Hopefully it will be good ground for Saturday which would be ideal.

"He's in good order. We haven't got many opportunities for him so I thought we might as well have a bash at it and see how good he is."

Danzeno has only had five career starts but has already shown himself to be a smart sort, winning the Group Three Chipchase Stakes at Newcastle on his latest outing in June to give connections dreams of picking up a Group One.
