ARDENT rugby fans will be out in force at Haydock Park on Saturday willing Steve Prescott on to a maiden race victory.

For Rainford racehorse owner and Salford Red Devils boss Dr Marwan Koukash’s two year-old named after St Helens rugby league legend the late Steve Prescott will be carrying the colours of the world of rugby league when it makes its debut at the Live Music at the Races meeting.
