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

"...is open to significant improvement now, and is strongly fancied to follow up..."

Timeform on Beatboxer

Beatboxer - 18:15 Haydock

Beatboxer made plenty of appeal on paper, was strong in the betting, and duly made a winning debut at Sandown last month. He was the pick on looks, too, plenty of size and scope about him, and looked potentially useful, overcoming greenness to prevail. Beatboker is open to significant improvement now, and is strongly fancied to follow up, likely at the main expense of Summer Moon, who shaped with plenty of encouragement when second at Doncaster.

Motafaawit - 18:50 Haydock

Motafaawit has made a most promising start to his career, winning a minor event on debut at Leicester in June, and he pushed a potentially smart type all the way in a similar event at Newbury last time. That run came over six furlongs, showing his versatility, but the return to this trip seems sure to suit, and he sets a pretty good standard for these to aim at. Bullion Boss made an eye-catching debut at Ayr last month and could prove the biggest danger.

Dalshand - 19:55 Haydock

Dalshand has firmly found his feet for the David O'Meara team, winning his last two starts with a fair bit in hand, and a further 3 lb rise for his latest victory at Lingfield shouldn't be enough to prevent a hat-trick. He remains unexposed at two miles, and has seemed to thrive in small fields, so there is plenty in his favour here and he should remain hard to beat. Cliffs of Dover and Paddy A should ensure he doesn't have things all his own way, though.
