We’re heading to Merseyside for our tipster’s latest picks as today’s racing tips hitch up at Haydock.
Here are his three to shine in St Helens, while there’s also racing to enjoy from Dundalk, Fakenham, Newcastle, Redcar and Uttoxeter.
Racing Tips – 15th October – Haydock Tips
🏇 14:20 – Air Raid – 13/2
Last year’s winner sent out enough of a warning sign when third in the Sprint Trophy at York (40/1) to suggest he could be a major threat again here; all of best runs have come over soft ground which suggests a bold bid could be on the cards today.
🏇 16:05 – Ffion – 5/1
Chance taken on this consistent type chalking up a first win of the campaign having posted a couple of unlucky near-misses so far this term, losing by a neck at Chester last time out. Versatile competitor shouldn’t be phased by the going today and had a fine run over 1m in the Kensington Park Stakes at Royal Ascot earlier this summer.
🏇 17:10 – Whitehaven – 6/4
Oisin Murphy’s final ride of the day looks one of his strongest shouts on Merseyside as he bids to pull further clear of William Buick in the fight to be named Champion Jockey; mud-lover should fare well given promising soft-ground showings at this venue and Salisbury earlier this season.
Odds correct at time of writing but may be subject to change.
