Haydock Racing Tips: Indiana can build on debut promise

Andrew Asquith outlines the Timeform view at Haydock on Saturday

"...he is well up to winning a race of this nature with that experience under his belt..."

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a NAP, Next Best and Each-Way selection at Haydock on Saturday.

NAP: A good opportunity for Indiana Be

Indiana Be - 19:10 Haydock

Indiana Be came in for sustained late support just before making his debut at Thirsk last month and did well to finish as close as he did under the circumstances, faring by some way the best of those who were drawn high. The eventual winner put his experience to good use but Indiana Be boxed on all the way to the line and he is well up to winning a race of this nature with that experience under his belt.

NEXT BEST: Amanzoe can follow up

Amanzoe - 19:45 Haydock

Amanzoe built on her earlier promise when making a winning handicap debut at Leicester earlier this month, moving through the race like a horse some way ahead of her mark but needing every inch of the trip. She will likely be suited by further than a mile sooner rather than later, but she is the type to go on improving for a while yet, and a subsequent 3 lb rise in the weights probably underestimates her.

EACH-WAY: Dulla Bhatti may get an easy lead

Dulla Bhatti - 20:15 Haydock

Dulla Bhatti remains with just one win to his name, but he is a relatively consistent type, so it could be worth forgiving him a lesser effort at Carlisle last time. He weakened inside the final furlong as if something was amiss given his attitude in the finish at Wetherby on his penultimate start was much better than previously. There is a chance he will get an uncontested lead here and he will be competitive if bouncing back.
