Horse Racing betting tips: Saturday selections at Haydock

Saturday’s action on ITV encompasses a strong jumps card at Haydock and Racing Post tipster Robbie Wilders has provided his three best bets.

Robbie Wilders' tips

2.40 Haydock - Picanha @ 9/1
3.15 Haydock - Champagne Mystery @
10/3

2.40 Haydock - Picanha @ 9/1

bet365 are paying four places in the staying handicap hurdle at Haydock and PICANHA is the horse to have on your side with that concession.

Picanha was a useful sort a couple of seasons ago, finishing fourth in the Grade 2 novice hurdle on Cheltenham Trials Day in January 2022 before lowering the track record at Warwick in a staying handicap hurdle off 122.

That was his first run at three miles and he was off for 660 days after that, returning in a heavy-ground Newbury handicap in February and catching the eye with how well he travelled before failing to sustain his finishing effort behind race-fit rivals.

Picanha weakened into fourth there in a race fought out by Emitom and Kyntara, who both ran stormers in the Pertemps Final next time, and Picanha can take his off the same rating if building on that rock-solid reappearance.

Robbie Wilders' tip:

Picanha @ 9/1 - 1pt each-way

3.15 Haydock - Champagne Mystery @ 10/3

CHAMPAGNE MYSTERY looks a winner in waiting for Tom George and can strike on his third start for the stable in the following veterans’ handicap chase at Haydock.

The 10-year-old was a smart operator for George's son Noel in France, finishing fourth in a Grade 2 at Compiegne five months ago, and caught the eye when outrunning odds of 50/1 to finish fifth in a top handicap chase at Cheltenham in January when debuting for George senior.

He built on that by staying on into a close third in a muddling race at Kempton in February, form that is working out well with runner-up Heltenham scoring twice subsequently.

The handicapper has dropped Champagne Mystery 1lb for that excellent effort and, with slow ground and the extra emphasis on stamina sure to suit at Haydock, there is lots to like about him under Jonny Burke.

Robbie Wilders' tip:

Champagne Mystery @ 10/3 - 2pts win
