Bets Of The Day: The Tin Man to dazzle rivals

Today's best bet The Tin Man runs at Haydock
Today's best bet The Tin Man runs at Haydock

Nick Shiambouros was on the mark yesterday when his best bet Great Order won at Ascot. Nick turns his attentions to Haydock today with two strong fancies...

"He has only raced nine times and I do not think we have seen the best of him yet."

Back The Tin Man in the 16:30 at Haydock

14:25 Haydock - Montataire

Montataire should go close in this Listed contest.

This colt made the transition to Listed company in great style when defeating Gemina at Salisbury last month. He made all the running, and pulled clear inside the final furlong to win with plenty in hand.

Trainer Mark Johnston has kept him on the go all season and appears to thrive on racing. I think he can move forward and will probably try to make all once again. He is currently trading at 3.711/4 on the exchange which is just about right.

Contrast is worth a mention. He put up a much improved effort when bolting up in a maiden over this course last month. This is much tougher, but is the big improver in the race.

16:30 Haydock - The Tin Man

The Tin Man is an interesting runner in this mouthwatering Group 1 sprint.

This gelding has been knocking at the door at the highest level and I believe he has the talent to break through today. Last time out at Newbury he won a Group 3 event by a head from Divine, but the margin could have been far greater.

He was sent off as favourite in the Diamond Jubilee at Royal Ascot but disappointed behind Twilight Son.

Trainer James Fanshawe has exercised a great deal of patience with this talented individual, and appears to have him ready to do himself justice. He has only raced nine times and I do not think we have seen the best of him yet.

He is currently trading at 8.88/1 on the exchange and I have backed him at this price.

Limato looks like the horse to beat but his current price of 3.55/2 is thin. He is a proven Group 1 performer and was most impressive when winning the July Cup at HQ. If he puts it all together he will be tough to beat.
