Timeform pick out three bets from Haydock on Friday...

"He should prove a tough nut to crack turned out under a 6 lb penalty..."

Beyond Equal - 14:55 Haydock

Beyond Equal came on plenty for his reappearance run last month, putting up a big career-best performance when winning a six-furlong handicap at Salisbury last week, running out a ready winner of what looked an open handicap beforehand. He should prove a tough nut to crack turned out under a 6 lb penalty, and is readily preferred to likely challengers Kalagia and Bahuta Acha.

Feline Groovy - 15:30 Haydock

Feline Groovy is bred to be useful and made a promising start to her career when finishing second in a minor event at Newmarket last month. There is plenty of substance to her, and she shaped as though the race would bring her on, so an even better performance is expected now. William Haggas's runners continue to go well and she could take a bit of stopping here. The more experienced Shepard Market sets the standard on form and is feared most, while Labrega is another open to improvement.

Dance On The Day - 16:05 Haydock

Dance On The Day showed improved form to get off the mark on her return at Wolverhampton last month, and that form has some substance to it with the runner-up and fourth both winning on their next start. Her pedigree suggests she is likely to stay this far and she could be up to defying a penalty for a yard that do well at this course. Simon Crisford's newcomer Shamlahar makes a fair bit of appeal on paper and it will be interesting to see how she fares in the betting.
