Hamilton is a fairly unique and tricky course. It’s undulating and has a dip before a pronounced uphill climb to the winning post. For that reason it’s a track that won’t suit every horse so we’ve picked out three horses with proven track records to consider. Check out our free tips page for content across all British and Irish racing.
Quanah (10-3, William Hill) has more career wins here than at every other track combined. His record here stands at three wins and two seconds in 11 starts. Added to that, his record over 5f is significantly better than over 6f so the trip is a big plus. He won last time out off 6lb lower but there’s enough form in the book to suggest he can compete off this mark.
Rose Bandit (6-1, William Hill) has finished in the first three in seven out of her 11 starts at the Scottish track. This includes two wins and her current form suggests she could well add to that total. Current ground conditions shouldn’t be a problem as she’s a three-time winner on good-to-soft. She finished third off this mark over 5f at Musselburgh last time out and a repeat of that effort over a furlong further would give her a good shout.
Where’s Jeff (3-1, William Hill) has the most extraordinary record here having only finished out of the places once in 10 career starts. This evidence suggests he’s likely to run his race and he looks fairly well handicapped. His current mark of 70 is 2lb lower than his last winning one. He should find this race easier having been dropped in grade and a big run can be expected.
