ITV Racing fans have seven races at Haydock Park on Sunday, August 7. Let's jump into our best ITV Racing betting tips.

ITV Racing Tips - Saturday, August 7th


3:45 HAYDOCK - Sky Bet Sunday Apprentice Training Series Handicap

FAST RESPONSE won three times last term and might have pushed the winner harder had he not been hampered late on at Thirsk eight days ago, eventually beaten just over one length by Intrinsic Bond.

Karl Burke’s charge was returing to form having ran a shade flat in his previous outings this season and he could go one better if running to a similar level. William Pyle’s 3lbs allowance means he’ll effectively
contest here from just 1lb above his last winning mark and there’d be no surprise to see him in the mix again.

4:15 HAYDOCK - Sky Bet Sunday Series Newcomers' EBF Maiden Stakes

ROAD TO THE EAST represents the Karl Burke yard and the Pivotal colt can make a winning debut in a race full of unraced rivals.

Related to some useful winners the yard is 4-10 with its’ 2yo newcomers over the past fortnight and any market support would be significant; he can make his presence felt in what should be an informative contest.

4:45 HAYDOCK - Sky Bet Sunday Series Sprint Handicap

This is competitive and a chance is taken with SURPROSE PICTURE who got back to winning ways at Hamilton eight days ago, returning to form having been running below his best.

Keith Dalgleish’s charge struck by a neck, making all and holding on well when challenged and while he’s only been raised 2lbs for the win he has won off higher marks in the past.

Assuming he can keep his resurgence going then there’d be no surprise in seeing the Kodiac gelding going close again.

5:15 HAYDOCK - Sky Bet Sunday Series Middle Distance Handicap

RICH KING wasn’t seen to best effect at Southwell last time and might be better judged on his earlier course and distance victory where the Gleneagles gelding prevailed by a short-head over Tamilla.

The step up in trip seems to have been a positive factor in the fortunes of Ed Bethell’s charge who had finished runner-up the time before on hisreappearance at Redcar and back on turf for this outing he could do better than when last seen.

The form of his course and distance win is working out with the runner-up, fourth, fifth and sixth horses home all winning since and he ought to give a good account here.

5:45 HAYDOCK - Sky Bet Sunday Series Nursery Handicap

NAP HAND can quickly get back to winning ways here having perhaps been unsuited by Newmarket last time out when finishing fourth to Streets Of Gold.

Alan King’s charge had previously overcome inexperience to score on debut at Salisbury and while meeting with defeat latest the form looks strong with the runner-up and fifth horses home both winning subsequently.

The hood he wore that day is also discarded and with the step up in trip now switching to handicaps from a potentially decent mark the Fast Company colt can post a big effort.

6:15 HAYDOCK - Sky Bet Sunday Series Fillies' Handicap

This is easier than the Listed company QUEEN AMINATU contested last time out and William Haggas’ charge can get back on the up.

The Muharrar filly won twice on the all-weather earlier in the campaign and she ran well here on softer ground in June when finishing just a head third behind Elsals although she might well have won had she not been denied a clear run late on when coming with a strong challenge.

The runner-up in that race has won twice since and  she’s back in a handicap now having beaten only one home at Sandown last month in the Listed Coral Distaff. These waters are much calmer and there’d be no shock to see her bouncing back to form where she can go close.

6:45 HAYDOCK - Sky Bet Sunday Series Stayers Handicap

RUN FOR OSCAR won twice over hurdles last year before tackling a Grade Two at Wetherby and back on the flat Charles Byrne’s charge can resume winning ways.

The Irish challenger has had two runs on the level this season, finishing down the field at the Curragh in May but stepping forward with that run under his belt to finish a good third back at that venue in June behind Maze Runner where he was denied a clear run two furlongs out when coming with his challenge.

That winner and runner-up both ran well in valuable races at the Galway Festival and he could be fairly handicapped given his hurdles exploits so every chance of a big run here for his shrewd yard.
