Haydock Park Racecourse

There are eight meetings scheduled to take place across Britain and Ireland on Saturday, with the highlights coming at Sandown and Hyadock.

First off are Sandown, Haydock, Beverley and Naas, before the four evening meetings come from Leicester, Bellewstown (jumps), Nottingham and Carlisle.

Amongst our Saturday selections is an unexposed three-year-old handicapper on Haydock's Premier Raceday. Below you can find Saturday's Racing Tips.

Saturday's Racing Tips - Saturday, July 6

  • 2.05 Haydock - Too Bossy For Us @ 6/1  
  • 2.40 Haydock - Queen Of The Pride @ 7/2  
  • 3.35 Sandown - City Of Troy @ 1/3  

2.05 Haydock - Too Bossy For Us @ 6/1  

TOO BOSSY FOR US is representing Kevin Philippart De Foy in the 14-runner Class 2 1m6f three-year-old handicap at Haydock.

De Foy is 3-18 (17%) in the past 14 days and the Golden Horn colt has decent claims of registering another victory for the yard.

The selection is thoroughly unexposed after only five career starts. He won well over 1m2f at Ascot in May and he performed with credit when noted keeping on well in the final furlong into a relatively close third of 11 over 1m4f on good to soft ground at Thirsk from a 6lb higher rating of 82.

He was raised another 3lb to a mark of 85 to underline the promise of that display, but he registered a peak Racing Post Rating (RPR) of 88, and more significantly he has abundant stamina in his pedigree and is a half-brother to a Listed 1m6f winner, so there is likely to more progression forthcoming as he edges up in distance.

This is an Extra Place Race, with Betfred paying four places instead of three at 1/5 odds.

2.40 Haydock - Queen Of The Pride @ 7/2  

QUEEN OF THE PRIDE makes significant appeal in the eight-runner Group 2 1m4f Lancashire Oaks at Haydock, representing John and Thady Gosden.

The Gosdens trained the winner of this race through Free Wind in 2022, and their 2024 contender is a daughter of Roaring Lion, and the second foal out of the St Leger winner Simple Verse.

She kept on well to win a 1m2f Leicester maiden last September, ran second in Listed company on her reappearance at Goodwood in May and improved to win a Group 3 contest over this course and distance on her fourth career start last month.

The selection is open to more improvement over middle distances and is the clear percentage call in this field.

Stake back, up to £10, if your horse finishes second.

3.35 Sandown - City Of Troy @ 1/3  

Finally, CITY OF TROY has strong win claims in the eight-runner feature Group 1 1m2f Coral-Eclipse Stakes at Sandown, representing Aidan O'Brien.

O'Brien trained the winner of this prestigious Group 1 contest, the first chance for the Classic generation to test their mettle against their elders, with the three-year-olds St Mark's Basilica and Paddington in 2021 and 2023.

His 2024 contender arrives on the back of a ready Derby success following a faultless juvenile campaign. Nine winners of this race since 2014 were officially rated 118+ and he is the only qualifier with a mark of 124.

City Of Troy is 2-2 on good to soft ground given the rain in the run up to the race and it will be surprising if a Group 1 7f and 1m4f winner isn't versatile enough to win over this 1m2f trip in the same grade.
