I have picked out four bets on today’s excellent card at Haydock, which features the Group 1 Betfair Sprint Cup at 15:25.

Haydock Tips

13:45 – 1m Betfair Superior Mile Stakes (Group 3)

KHALOOSY (NAP – 1 point win bet at 15/8) won the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot by 4.5-lengths on just his third career start, marking him down as a very smart performer. That came on soft ground and resulted in him being sent off at odds on for a Group 3 at Goodwood next time out. He was comfortably beaten there, but quick ground can be blamed for that he is taken to bounce back today with conditions to suit. Stormy Antarctic, second in a Group 1 last time out, is next best.

14:50 – 1m6f Betfair Exchange Old Borough Cup Handicap (Class 2)

This test looks ideal for the Mark Johnston-trained CAPE COAST (1 point win bet at 8/1), who beat a strong field to land the bet365 Heritage Handicap at Newmarket last time out. That race came on soft ground over today’s 1m6f distance, so these race conditions look ideal. He has been raised 5lbs by the handicapper but is very lightly raced for a six-year-old and has William Buick in the saddle for the first time. Future Investment and Rajinsky look to be the biggest dangers.

15:25 – 6f Betfair Sprint Cup Stakes (Group 1)

The admirably consistent sprinter HELLO YOUMZAIN (1 point win bet at 4/1) can land the Sprint Cup for the second year in a row and provide Kevin Stott, who is having a fine season, with another top-level success. Stott was not aboard for last year’s victory but did ride this son of Kodiac to win the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. The pair were last seen less than a length behind the ultra-impressive Space Blues in France and that represents very strong form. His form figures at Haydock read 211 and he looks set to encounter his optimum ground conditions. Art Power and Golden Horde are both capable of big runs, and it would be no surprise to see either of them bounce back to form.

16:00 – 5f Betfair Each Way Edge Be Friendly Handicap (Class 2)

MILITIA (1 point win bet at 10/1) appears to have been overlooked in the market and is very attractively priced for a horse that has won his last three starts. Of course, this represents a step up in class for Paul Midgley’s sprinter, but he has been winning comfortably enough and can’t be discounted off a 4lb higher mark. He is very well suited by ground with some ease in it and is 2-4 for jockey Graham Lee. Came From The Dark and Jabbarockie complete the shortlist.
