16:30 Haydock – Mutadaffeq (BEST ODDS 7/4 with Ladbrokes)
This horse is a distance winner who is on a hat-trick here after two very good wins on the flat. The Racing Post have him as being tipped nine times and I’m surprised he’s not the favourite. For me, he’s the classiest horse in the field. It helps that the jockey and trainer both have excellent records at this course. The favourite doesn’t look to have been tested as much up to now so I’ll oppose him here.
