There's an excellent Flat card at Haydock Park on Saturday, and our in-house tipster Steve Chambers has picked out three horses to bet during the afternoon...

Here at HorseRacing.net, we've already dissected the feature race at Haydock on Saturday, and you can read our John Of Gaunt Stakes Preview Here, but there's a sparkling undercard this weekend and there's three other bets on the card that are worth taking note of.

13:45 Haydock - Betway Handicap

A devilishly difficult punting conundrum will have racegoers scratching their heads at 13:45, as 16 go to post for the 6f Betway Handicap. However, the Kevin Ryan-trained Bielsa looks to stand a marvellous chance of getting his head in front and claiming a notable success.

With ground conditions set to be in his favour, the six-year-old lines up on the back of a fifth placed finish at York earlier this month. Having hit the front as they entered the final furlong of that York event, BIELSA just failed to maintain the late surge for glory in the closing stages of the race. He possibly could have hit the front a tad too soon in that contest, so if Silvestre De Sousa can hold on to his charge until the final moment then he could well unleash a blistering turn of foot to claim gold.

He has surprisingly been dropped 1lb for that fine effort, so lines up off a mark of 95 on Saturday, which is only 2lbs higher than his last winning mark of 93. The cheekpieces will be retained for Saturday's outing, which is a notable positive, and while the likes of Capote's Dream, Helvezia and Cold Stare look a leading trio, it's Bielsa that can score in fine fashion.

14:20 Haydock - Betway Achilles Stakes

John Quinn's El Astronaute is bidding for back-to-back wins in the Achilles Stakes on Saturday, but having claimed Listed glory in this event at Doncaster last year, the eight-year-old speedster will have to produce the goods at Haydock Park this time around. He lines up in fine fettle, as he was last seen sparkling around the tight turns of Chester on his way to victory in a conditions event, and if he can replicate that run at the weekend, then he looks a notable contender.

However, it's the Robert Cowell-trained ALJADY that stands out as his biggest danger, as the son of Bated Breath looks to bounce back from a mediocre run at Newmarket last time out. A well beaten fifth in the Group 3 Palace House Stakes at Flat HQ, Aljady will drop in grade for this event, and showed last year when winning some decent sprints that he has the class to strike at this level, and the slower underfoot conditions could spring him back to life.

One win and one third placed finish on his two previous visits to Haydock, Aljady will relish a return to the Lancashire track, and if he can replicate last year's form (won 4 of 7 races) then he marks terrific value in another trappy betting heat.

14:55 Haydock - Pinnacle Stakes

There's Group action up next at Haydock at 14:55 with the fillies and mares taking centre stage in the Group 3 Pinnacle Stakes. David Simcock's Oriental Mystique is an eye-catching runner, as she was last seen finishing third at Goodwood in Listed company, but the daughter of Kingman is sure to improve for that outing and has to be a major challenger here.

But, the standout contender is the Roger Varian-trained CABALETTA, who put up a decent effort on her seasonal reappearance when third in the Group 2 Middleton Stakes at York, and if she can build on that effort then she has to be the one to be with. A Listed winner at Newbury last season, the daughter of Mastercraftsman was a real model of consistency last season, but failed when upped in class in the Group 1 Fillies' & Mares' Stakes at Ascot on British Champions Day.

She won't face an opposition in that league here, and if Varian can improve her from that aforementioned York run then she looks to be a well deserved favourite. It could be that she would enjoy a little extra distance than this 1m 3f 175y, but she should still have the class to outdo her rivals, and she looks to be the bet of the day.
