There is racing from Haydock on Saturday

Timeform pick out three bets from the UK on Saturday.


Ebony Express - 14:10 Market Rasen

Ebony Express won the Imperial Cup from a mark of 131 in 2015 and remains obviously well treated on that form here (5 lb lower in the weights) after bouncing back with a good win at Uttoxeter in February. He can provide Dr Richard Newland with a second win in this race in the past three years, perhaps at the main expense of Swinton winner John Constable, although it also wouldn't be a surprise to see last year's winner Red Tornado bounce back to form.

Maggies Angel - 15:35 Newbury

Richard Fahey has a good record in this race (two wins in the last four years) and his best chance this time around would seem to be Maggies Angel, who was second in listed company at Newmarket on her last start and was probably worth marking up given the part of the track where she made her challenge. One at a big price to consider is Hello Girl, who could improve for the drop to 5f, while Time Trail is another to consider for all she has a high draw to overcome.

Jungle Cat - 19:30 Haydock

Jungle Cat proved his stamina for seven furlongs with an excellent second to Home of The Brave at Newmarket on his penultimate start, and though he was unable to capitalise on a good opening at Chester last time, he is worth another chance here. Crazy Horse would be a big threat if bouncing back to anywhere near his best and is one who would benefit from the forecast rain arriving (all 3 wins on good or softer), while Ibn Malik looks best of the rest.
