Saturday Racing - Haydock Park Temple Stakes

Saturday's feature race is undoubtedly the Haydock Park Temple Stakes, setting off live on Channel Four Racing at 16:10. We've had a look over the runners and we think three among the favourites are the ones that really catch the eye.

First up, everyone is talking about Mecca's Angel, whose form tells the story why. She was superb last season, and indeed left a number of her fellow runners today trailing in her wake when she took victory in last year's Nuthorpe. It's understandable that the punters fancy her again here, and the best place we've found to back her is StanJames, who are offering a market leading 7/4.

That said, we're not so sure she ought to be such a far and away favourite. Bear in mind if the ground really doesn't suit her then she may be withdrawn, with the consequent Rule 4 adjustments to any winning payouts. If she races, though, and the ground stays good or harder, we're happy to take her on with two of the pack.

First up, Muthmir has the ability to really shine, showing last season that he had developed into a truly impressive sprinter. His King George win at Goodwood is the kind of form we'd like to see this weekend, and although his recent runs don't look to have quite the calibre of Mecca's Angel he certainly wasn't disgraced in any of them.

If the ground tends away from Angel then Muthmir is going to be very much in contention, and the best place to back him is at PaddyPower, who are offering the best price we've found anywhere at 8/1.

The other horse we expect to be heavily involved is Waady, despite his finishing third behind Profitable in the Palace House on his return at Newmarket three weeks back. On the basis of that Profitable has been tipped by many, but we think the faster ground is going to play more strongly into the hands of Waady.

He shows best at this distance and the ground should be handily in his favour. We reckon Waady is a strong choice to be on, and the best place we've found to back him is at BoyleSports, who will give you a very decent 8/1.

Saturday Racing - Newbury Lockinge Stakes

This weekend's big feature race is the Lockinge Stakes at Newbury. Setting off at 15:55, it's broadcast live on Channel Four Racing and it's the perfect opportunity to try and make a little money.

It looks like being a great renewal, too, with the betting at the top of the field very tight indeed. Just edging ahead at most bookies is Toormore, who finished second to stablemate Night Of Thunder here last year. With Night Of Thunder not reappearing, last year's runner up looks like a really solid bet to take the laurels this time round.

The yard is obviously confident in Toormore, who took a good win on his reappearance this year, and the competitiveness of the field means that even as favourite he is going off at longer odds than you might expect. The best place we found to back him is at SkyBet, at a decent 9/2.

There are plenty of horses ready to fight Toormore for this one, and of those running him close at the bookies we fancy Limato as the strongest challenger. He was in excellent form and looked very progressive last year, and a good run to second in a Group 1 in France gave the impression that the step up to 1 mile would suit him.

That said, he's unraced on ground any softer than good, so expect him to be pulled if the rain returns. As things stand he's likely to start if the ground remains good to soft, and we think he should have what it takes to feature strongly at the finish.

The best place to back him is at 888Sport, at a very reasonable 5/1.

If you fancy a bit of a long odds punt our eye is drawn to Euro Charline. She doesn't always manage to be on song, but on her day she's a force to be reckoned with. It's hard to argue that she's on a par with the frontrunners here, but a good showing at Meydan in March suggests that she could be there or thereabouts at the line.

She's maybe not one to back for the win, but at 22/1 over at StanJames we think she's well worth taking each way.
