4:15 Hamilton – HOUGOUMONT (1pt E/W – 20/1 Bet365, 11/1 generally)

Contrary to popular belief a high draw is not advantageous in 6f races at Hamilton. Since the start of last year backing stalls 1, 2 and 3 blind would have found 23 winners from 102 bets for a huge profit of £245.74 to a £1 level stake at SP. The interesting one is HOUGOUMONT (stall 2 of 13) who looks too big at double-digit odds. Julie Camacho’s three-year-old had three runs over this trip last year, going down by a neck at 18-1 at Carlisle to the 91-rated Lakota Blue, winning narrowly at Newcastle and again at Pontefract. He bombed out at York on his only other start but that was over 7f and I’m always prepared to forgive a poor run on the Knavesmire. He’[s been gelded since, which could bring about improvement and this stiff 6f will suit.

6:15 Hamilton – HEIGHTS OF ABRAHAM (1pt E/W – 14/1 Bet365, 12/1 generally)

The Keith Dalgleish-trained HEIGHTS OF ABRAHAM finished 20 lengths behind the winner when 14-1 for the 1m6f Betway Queen’s Cup on his reappearance at Musselburgh late last month but that run would have been needed. The four-year-old has improved markedly for his three previous seasonal debut efforts – finishing a 22-1 fourth of seven at Ayr in July 2020 before advancing his RPR (Racing Post Rating) by 12lb when scoring at Musselburgh the following month, winning at the second time of asking in 2021, receiving a 14lb higher RPR than for his reappearance fourth, and last term, improving his RPR by 20lb from his comeback run when a 7-1 third over today’s course and distance.
