2.45 Haydock

The first of my racing tips today comes in this Class 3 handicap sprint over the 5f distance. The market leader is Astro Jakk at 10/3 for the Karl Burke team. Astro Jakks best form has come on the Forbes and he is worth taken on here.

The horse for me in CELSIUS 7/1 EW for the shrewd Tom Clover. This horse runs well fresh and is 2-2 over this C+D. Celsius will have no issues with the Haydock ground and Atzeni is an eye-catching jockey booking.


3.15 Haydock

The 3.15 at Haydock is a Class 3 handicap over the 6f distance and it’s 9/2 the field which shows it’s a wide-open handicap.

The horse I like is INTISAAB 9/2 WIN for the David O’Meara team. Intisaab ran a cracker at Newmarket last week beaten a short head by Silent Echo and he would have got up if the race was 5 yards longer. James Doyle keeps the ride which is a positive and this horse has won over C+D previously. The ground should hold no fears.


4.15 Haydock

Arguably the most exciting race on this Haydock card is this 4.15 contest over 1m2f.

The horse for me is the unbeaten Sharmadal filly BEAUTIFUL ILLUSION 13/8 WIN NB for the Godolphin team. Trained by Charlie Appleby with James Doyle take the ride this horse won both starts as a 2-year-old and I’m expecting that unbeaten run to continue here as I’m confident Beautiful Illusion will have improved over the winter being by Sharmadal.


2.00 Leopardstown

The 2.00 race is a Derby trial over the 1m2f distance and no surprise Aiden O’Brien holds all of the aces here. O’Brien saddles the hot 11/8 favourite Russian Emperor who ran well as a 2-year-old coming third first time out before improving to win his second career start. A bold bid looks likely but the horse for me is the second string from the yard and that IBERIA 9/4 NAP.

Iberia shown useful form last season coming third in the Royal Lodge which is easily the strongest piece of form in this lineup. The return to better ground will be a massive plus and the first-time blinkers will hopefully help him settle here. Wayne Lordan takes the rides and I’m confident this son of Galileo will run a huge race here before going onto better things.


2.30 Leopardstown

My final selection comes in the wide-open betting heat that is the 2.30 race. A Group 3 race for the fillies over the 7f distance.

The horse I like is the Johnny Murtagh trained KNOW IT ALL 7/1 EW. Know It All shown useful form throughout last season winning over this distance on her second start before running well to be beaten less than a length on her final start of the campaign in the Group 3 Weld Park Stakes. A return to better ground here will be a plus and 7/1 is a fair ew bet.
