The Best Horse Racing Tips for Haydock & Hamilton on Friday

Plenty of excellent Flat Horse Racing action on Friday with the meetings at Newbury, Haydock and Nottingham in the afternoon and Newmarket and Hamilton in the evening.

We will provide Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for Haydock’s 5f nursery at 3.35pm, along with the 7.30pm and 8.00pm races from Hamilton, the Scottish Stewards’ Cup and Glasgow Stakes.

Our Tip for the 3.35pm at Haydock:

Not a lot for form on offer for this six-runner nursery but the Roger Fell-trained Just A Claim has shown enough in her three starts to date to suggest the daughter of Aclaim may have been let in lightly on her handicap debut.

The mount of talented 3lb claimer Mark Crehan has gone off at big prices for those three runs (80/1 the last twice) despite showing plenty of promise. Fourth of 11 on her most recent start at Thirsk, the winner Najat going on to run well in a Listed race at Newmarket, while the third May Punch wasn’t beaten far at Ripon recently.

An opening mark of 64 looks on the lenient side for Just A Claim who is fancied to open her account at the main expense of top weight Lucky Shake.

Our Tip for the 7.30pm at Hamilton:

Plenty can be fancied for this Class 2 sprint handicap, including the in-form duo of Rathbone and Mr Wagyu. Not many contenders look particularly well handicappoed however, one exception being the Tom Tate-trained Equinano Springs who could prove decent each-way value at a double-figure price.

The seven-year-old may not be the most consistent horse in the race but is a talented performer on his day, as when finishing second, conceding 3lb, to subsequent Group 3 winner Chil Chil at Ascot last August.

A fair sixth over today’s course and distance on his reappearance last month despite being very slowly away, the Equiano gelding meets the runner-up there Rathbone on much better terms and can be forgiven his latest effort at Newmarket over a furlong longer trip.

Our Tip for the 8.00pm at Hamilton:

The betting may suggest this Listed race rests between the unbeaten Mark Johnston inmate Kings Prince, impressive in winning both of his starts to date at Haydock and Pontefract, and Royal Ascot’s King Edward V11 Stakes third, Title.

While both horses post obvious claims, it could be worth giving Aleas, from the Ralph Beckett stable, another chance to prove himself better than when beaten over 16 lengths behind subsequent Irish Derby runner-up Lone Eagle at Goodwood last time.

Prior to that below-par effort, Daniel Tudhope’s mount had won a handicap at Haydock by almost ten lengths, along with a neck victory over fellow rival Title at Newbury as a juvenile.
