Hugo Palmer ponders Haydock Sprint Cup charge with Gifted Master

Gifted Master could return to the top table for the first time in over a year in the 32Red Sprint Cup at Haydock.
The six-furlong Group One prize on Saturday week is one of three options trainer Hugo Palmer is considering for the four-year-old following his recent return to form.
Gifted Master made the most of a drop in class on his penultimate start at Doncaster and continued his revival with a hard-fought success in a six-furlong Listed contest at Newmarket last Saturday.
Palmer said: "It was great to see Gifted Master win again.
"He is such a tough horse and has been an absolute star for us for some time and hopefully he will continue to be for a few more years to come. Often these gelded sprinters get better with age.
"The Park Stakes at Doncaster is definitely an option for him and he does also have an entry in the Ayr Gold Cup.
"There is also the Sprint Cup at Haydock. If you look at his time at Newmarket the other day, he ran a very fast six furlongs.
"Those are his three options and he will run in one of them."
