We are publishing early for Tuesday’s cards as we sense a gamble on our headline pick and what to get in ahead of the rush !!
Scotland hosts the best race of the day with a valuable 1m handicap (1530 BST). Some in-form runners include Gulf Of Poets aiming for 5 out of 5 this season, Nicholas T searching to complete a hat-trick, and Ionization over from Ireland and looking to break a sequence of seconds.
All those may have to fight for second behind the potentially progressive 4yo Weekend Offender. We tipped him on debut back in April at Nottingham. He was a decent 3rd that day after a slightly interrupted run, what we hadn’t realised at the time was how strong a race that was, with the first two home, George William and GK Chesterton both performing at the top level at Newbury, Epsom and Ascot.
In that context, Weekend Offender’s next move to Hamilton looks like shallower waters irrespective of the in-form opposition. We think Kevin Ryan’s gelding is capable of rising to top class handicap company and he can make a big step in that direction with a win here.
Over at Brighton (1545), another previously failed pick, Buzz Lightyere steps back up in trip in a very winnable looking 10f handicap. He hasn’t had great luck in running since winning here in early May, but he has the winner-hungry champion jockey in the saddle and the extra distance may now be needed. We’ll throw him into a supplementary double with our headline pick.
Weekend Offender (1530 Hamilton), 1pt win, 7/2 Ladbroke/Coral
Weekend Offender & Buzz Lightyere, 1pt win double, approx. 21/1
