There are three meetings taking place across the UK on Wednesday and there’s something for everyone, with two National Hunt meetings and an all-weather fixture to look forward to.

Haydock’s seven-race card appears to be the highlight of the day (14:15-17:00) and the ground is expected to be soft all over and heavy in places on the chase course. We’ve picked out three tips across the seven races that could be worth following, including one for Venetia Williams who is already a course and distance winner.

Haydock Betting Tips

  • 15:50  Haydock – Robyndzone @ 5/1
  • 16:25 Haydock – Kilta @ 15/8
  • 17:00 Haydock – President Scottie @ 9/4

15:50  Haydock – Robyndzone @ 5/1

It’s going to be very hard work on the chase course as it’s always very testing when conditions are wet at Haydock.

The 15:50 is a competitive handicap chase over an extended 3m4f and stamina will be the name of the game. Venetia Williams’ ROBYNDZONE could be the one to side with here, as he’s a proven stayer.

The 10-year-old son of Frammassone has won both of his completed starts so far this season and the key piece of form is his eight-length course and distance victory on heavy ground in December.

It was an impressive performance in what would appear to be a stronger race than this and he was always up with the pace. Travelling eye-catchingly well that day, the result never really looked in doubt.

A 7lb rise from the handicapper looked fair on the evidence of that run and his run at Exeter last time out was too bad to be true. You can probably forgive that below-par effort and he should have every chance, with Charlie Deutsch on board.

16:25 Haydock – Kilta @ 15/8

The Here's To Another Greyland 25 Years Handicap Hurdle at 16:25 is shaping up to be an interesting eight-runner affair. There’s an added element of intrigue here as Irish raider Largy Shark is due to line up for Stuart Crawford.

Sam England runs the thoroughly unexposed KILTA here and he looks well placed to follow up his last time out victory at Southwell. He’s had just four starts over hurdles so far and may remain ahead of the handicapper for the time being.

Kilta didn’t show a great deal in his first three starts over timber, which came in maiden and novice company. The best of those efforts was probably his five-and-a-half-length sixth in a maiden hurdle at Sedgefield.

It was a completely different story on handicap debut at Southwell last time out however. England’s gelding took a huge step forward and travelled powerfully en route to getting off the mark in good style.

An 8lb rise is probably fair enough and he could have plenty more wins up his sleeve before the handicapper catches up with this progressive and unexposed sort.

17:00 Haydock – President Scottie @ 9/4

Nicky Richards’ PRESIDENT SCOTTIE makes his handicap debut here and if turning up in similar form to last time out, he could prove very hard to beat here.

This six-year-old has shown clear signs of progress between each of his three starts over hurdles and won by a wide margin at Ayr last time out.

It has to be said that he was arguably losing the argument before his main rival fell but that horse has boosted the form by winning since.

Making his handicap debut off a mark of 117, that looks like a very workable mark and his profile suggests he should take another step forward here. He looked very strong at the finish last time and he shaped as if the step up in trip would suit.
