Timeform pick out three bets from Ascot and Haydock Park on Saturday.


Beyond Conceit - Ascot 13:15

Beyond Conceit looked an exciting prospect when making a successful hurdling debut at Newbury four weeks ago, travelling strongly in the leaders' slipstream throughout and quickly forging clear thereafter. That form received a boost when the winner went one better at Ludlow last time and, with the possibility of more to come with that initial experience under his belt, Beyond Conceit shades the vote from Topofthegame here and can maintain his unbeaten record over hurdles.

Agrapart - Haydock Park 14:05

Agrapart produced a career-best effort when winning the Relkeel Hurdle at Cheltenham on New Year's Day, edging ahead as the field turned into the straight and finding plenty to hold the challenge of the strong-travelling runner-up close home. That form leaves him 2 lb clear of Aux Ptits Soins on Timeform ratings here and Agrapart looks the one to beat in near optimum conditions, with Zarkandar also likely to be involved in a competitive little renewal of this Grade 2.

Call To Order - Haydock Park 14:40

Call To Order showed improved form when successful on his most recent outing in a competitive handicap at Cheltenham, relishing the step up to three miles for the first time and appearing to have more in hand than the official winning margin would suggest. He has a 7 lb hike in the weights to contend with here, but remains open to more improvement after just six starts over hurdles and Call To Order can qualify for the Final of this series with a defeat of Big River.
