The Best Horse Racing Tips for Haydock Park on Saturday


Haydock Park host the best horse racing action on Saturday, the highlight being the Group 1 Betfair Sprint Cup Stakes.

The six furlong speed test is expected to be run on soft ground this year and we will provide a Horse Racing tip, preview and prediction for the 13-runner contest, due to take place at 3.25pm.

We will also supply Horse Racing tips for two of the supporting races, the Group 3 Betfair Superior Mile Stakes at 1.45pm and the hugely competitive 17-runner Betfair Exchange Old Borough Cup at 2.50pm.

Our Tip for the 1.45pm at Haydock:

Two three-year-old’s look like dominating the betting for this Group 3 contest. The William Haggas-trained My Oberon, a best price 5/2 with BetVictor, will be having just his fourth start, the two most recent outings being an impressive victory in a York Novice Stakes, prior to finishing a creditable second in a Group 3 at Goodwood.

Third in that race was Khaloosy, from the Roger Varian stable, who was sent off a warm 4/7 favourite at the Sussex venue on the back of his easy Britannia Stakes win at Royal Ascot. The 11/4 chance with Paddy Power failed to produce his best in that tactical affair at Goodwood and is probably the one they all have to beat.

From a value perspective however, the Richard Hannon-trained Qaysar looks a tempting each-way bet in the eight-race field at the 12/1 available with bet365. The son of Choisir won on his last two visits to Haydock, both on soft ground, and the mount of Ryan Moore can outrun his odds under similar conditions.

Our Tip for the 2.50pm at Haydock:

A wide-open staying handicap in which most of the 17 runners can be given a chance. Top weight Glencadam Glory, a 15/2 chance with Boylesports, would take plenty of beating if able to reproduce his recent second place in York’s Ebor behind Fujaira Prince.

Having to carry 9st 10lb on soft ground could prove too tough a test for the six-year-old however, whereas stablemate Dark Jedi (12/1 with Betfred) looks to have plenty in his favour and could improve for the step-up in trip.

The Kodiac gelding has been in great form since joining Tim Easterby from Charles Hills and may have been unlucky to run up against a possible Group horse in Alfaatik last time. Saturday’s extra two furlongs could suit Dark Jedi who will not be inconvenienced by the underfoot conditions.

In an open contest, Rajinsky (12/1 with Betfair Sportsbook), from the Tom Dascombe stable, is another to consider. The gelding has narrowly failed to win his last three starts and should not be far away once again.

Our Tip for the 3.25pm at Haydock:

While it is easy to make a case for all of the leading contenders in this Group 1 sprint, it is likely to boil down to which horse is able to produce their best form on the day.

Dream Of Dreams (3/1 with BetVictor), Hello Youmzain (7/2 with Betfred) and Golden Horde (13/2 with bet365) have all posted victories this season which would entitle them to go close, while Art Power (8/1 with Paddy Power) and Lope Y Fernandez (7/1 with BetVictor) have shown enough to suggest they are capable of winning at Group 1 level.

At a massive 33/1 with Paddy Power, however, an each-way bet on the bang-in-form Summerghand could pay dividends. It is fairly common for a sprinter to make the transition from handicapper to Group performer and in this year’s Stewards’ Cup winner, trainer David O’Meara has a horse at the top of his game.

Beaten a neck on his most recent start at Newmarket, after being given a lot to do by jockey William Buick, the rider can make amends at the highest level by causing a shock in an open renewal.
