Away from the main ITV meetings, our accumulators and festivals tipster Karl Hedley has selected four runners for consideration in a Lucky 15. A Lucky 15 bet involves 15 bets across four different selections. Your bets are 4 single bets, 6 doubles, 4 trebles, and 1 four-fold accumulator. Due to single bets being included, one winning selection is enough to trigger a pay-out.
All of today’s selections are no strangers to the winners’ enclosure and hopefully, with a bit of luck they can find their way back their once again. So, read on for the best Lucky 15 tips for Saturday.

12-40 Haydock – Innisfree Lad (15/2)
Innisfree Lad seems to be coming into form just at the right time. His seasonal reappearance was nothing to write home about as he trailed in some sixty-four lengths behind Some Chaos over three miles. He then ran just a few weeks later at Carlisle and looked a different prospect altogether. He cut through his rivals like a hot knife through butter and only just failed to reel in Houston Texas who got first run. As he does nothing but stay, the ten-year-old is once again likely to be doing all of his best work in the closing stages. Champion jockey Brian Hughes knows this lad well and has won on him before. If progressing again, the pair should be capable of going very close here.
1-15 Haydock – Albert’s Back (9/2)
Albert’s Back appreciates a soft surface and that looks exactly what he is going to get here. The eight-year-old is the only previous course and distance winner in the field and in conditions like this that will count for a lot. He made a good seasonal return when chasing home Parisiencore at Wetherby just three weeks ago and he is expected to come on for that run. He has won over further than this in the past so expect plenty of use to be made of his assured stamina. The lightly raced gelding is partnered by Harry Cobden this afternoon for the first time and the Mick Easterby trained runner is officially two pounds well in here on the best of his old form. No surprise if he puts his experience to good use and can go one better today.
1-58 Huntingdon – Manor Park (5/1)
Manor Park will appreciate the good ground on offer today at Huntingdon. He bounced back to winning ways when always seeming to be prominent in that last race at Ludlow. He gave chase to Petrastar and eventually wore that one down into submission and recorded an admirable eight length victory to his record. Thomas Doggrell takes off a useful seven pounds and he knows all about this seven-year-old son of Medicean. Manor Park likes going right handed so this track should be fine for him and Brian Barr has his small team in some form at present.
3-23 Punchestown – Tyre Kicker (8/1)
Tyre Kicker was making his first run in 164 days when he finished fourth to the re-opposing Jungle Prose at Down Royal a fortnight ago. He is more then entitled to come on for that run and today he is twelve pounds better off with that rival. As a previous course and distance winner, he commands even more respect here and he has gone well on similar ground in the past. He has only had a handful of runs throughout his relatively short career but the yard have certainly clicked into form in recent weeks and he shouldn’t be too far away.
