3:45 Haydock Racing Tips (20th July)

Haydock Racing Tips
HAYDOCK 3.45 (8.4)
I like this type of race where i can throw out a good few of the runners, in this race discard 4 and there would be a 5th if it wasn't a 3 year old, I've only got 1lb difference between the 3 horses at the top of the handicap, 3rd and joint 2nd top rated on my figures, my selection CANFORD BAY 11/1 seems to like to run with a low weight against better horses and a repeat of its time when 2nd at Thirsk 2 runs ago would see it winning here and the price permits an each way wager.

Canford Bay 14/1 2nd
HAMILTON 6.50 (7.4)
Only 7 runners and only 3 with recorded times but a lack of early pace could be a problem, Mont Kiara is 3rd best but being a hold up type this race might not be run to suit it, Mujassam usually tracks the leader and comes out 2nd best leaving KING ROBERT 5/1 as my selection but this one wouldn't want the going to be too fast.

King Robert 5/1 4th
HAMILTON 7.20 (7.4)
This looks a cracking class 2 race with 13 runners but only 1 known pacesetter but I doubt its capable of leading all the way here, Dark Defender is 4th best but doesn't want to hear its hooves rattling, Golden Steps is 3rd best and a hold up type which might not suit it here, Classic Seniority is 2nd top and another that doesn't like really fast ground, top of my list is THE GREAT WALL 9/2 who is only a 4 year old and sprung into form last time out here and a repeat time would see it win this race but that was only a class 4 race so I'm hoping it can cope with stepping up 2 levels.

The Great Wall 9/2 5th
NEWMARKET 7.45 (8.0)
This 4 runner race could turn into a tactical affair but I think the one that's most likely to lead here is MIRZA 13/8 and if allowed to set its own pace could lead from start to finish but any stakes will be kept below the top amount.

Mirza 15/8 4th

NEWMARKET 8.15 (8.0)
A small field of 6 but with 2 front runners it should be a true run affair especially as the other 4 all like to track the leaders, Poets Vanity is my 2nd best rating but has to give a lot of weight to my selection which is DIZZY G 2/1 who is going for the 4 timer here and has merited this move up in class and being a 3 year old it could still have more to come as it matures.

Dizzy G 2/1 4th
PONTEFRACT 9.10 (8.4)
There's 7 runners and 3 or them could try to set the pace, Ninjago is my 3rd top rated but a hold up type so this race should suit it, COSMIC CHATTER 7/1 is only 1lb below top spot and being a front runner could easily turn that around but i do have FULL INTENTION 10/1 who likes to track the leaders in top spot so i will go with backing them both to cover both angles.

Full Intention 11/1 2nd
Cosmic Chatter 12/1 4th
