The forgotten race on Sunday where Liverpool players – and punters – could land a serious pot

, The forgotten race on Sunday where Liverpool players – and punters – could land a serious pot

THERE is a forgotten race taking place on Sunday which could net Liverpool players – and punters – a tasty pot.

While the Curragh takes centre stage with the running of the 1000 Guineas amid a packed home schedule, a top Group 2 in Germany could represent an easier puzzle to solve.

Especially if an exciting William Haggas two-year-old continues to progress in the German 2000 Guineas.

Maljoom has looked the real deal in two runs, winning by a combined two-and-three-quarter lengths over seven furlongs at Doncaster and a mile at Kempton.

He has formed part of an electric start to the season for Haggas.

At the time of writing the Somerville Lodge chief had banged in 16 winners from 34 runners over the past fortnight for an impressive 47 per cent strike rate.

Tom Marquand was in the saddle for Maljoom’s first two wins, coming at the end of March and last month.

Stevie Donohoe gets the gig this weekend on the Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum-owned runner.

Connections will net £84,034 with victory and it looks like Maljoom, who won on good going on debut at Donny, should relish similar conditions in Cologne.

He spearheads a three-pronged Brit attack on the race.

Hugo Palmer has settled into life well at Michael Owen’s Manor House and it’s Mr McCann who runs for them after a pipe-opener at Chester earlier this month.

The horse, owned by five Liverpool players and former Red Adam Lallana, will be ridden by 1000 and 2000 Guineas hero James Doyle.

Mr McCann has already earned Trent Alexander-Arnold, James Milner, Andy Robertson, Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain just shy of £30,000.

He could have much more to offer in his second run under his new trainer – while his connections focus on trying to win the league in the season’s final game.

Stan Moore also sends over The Wizard of Eye, who finished 11th of 15 and nine lengths behind Coroebus in the 2000 Guineas.

The race, open to three-year-old colts and fillies, takes place at 12.23pm on Sunday.
