Form & Verdict

Unexposed 4yo; spoiled his chance by hanging left when beaten favourite at Musselburgh (12.5f, good; handicap debut) last month but was possibly still a shade green; remains open to improvement at this sort of level; shortlisted.

Has done her winning in Class 6 races, most recently at Ayr (1m5f, good) last month; combination of career-high mark, shorter trip and return to higher grade is a reason to oppose her.

Both wins on turf; consistent on AW this year and looked unlucky in 1m2f contest at Chelmsford most recently (beaten a nose; might have won but for being briefly short of room); solid chance off just 1lb higher returned to this sphere.

Scored readily over C&D (good to soft; off 7lb lower) on most recent turf start, beating some of these opponents and taking Hamilton record to 3-3; inconsistent otherwise this year but warrants respect back here.

J: Cam Hardie

He's made a bright start to the campaign, including a 1m3f win at Southwell last month, and his latest second at Pontefract came at the hands of a well-treated rival; has won over C&D in the past and he's respected for a yard in fine form.

Took his form up a notch when landing 1m3f Southwell handicap 22 days ago, deserving extra credit given he lost ground at the start in a slowly run race; he holds major claims off a 1lb lower mark back on turf.

Highly productive for new stable this year, winning six times (AW/turf); however, last couple of efforts suggest he's perhaps in the assessor's grip now; others look better treated.

J: Harry Burns

T: Ian Williams

Failed to win in Ireland but he went close at Nottingham on his stable debut last month before an easy win at Pontefract nine days ago (1m2f, soft); 3lb well in under a penalty and the return of cheekpieces could have a positive effect; strong claims.

No match for My Little Queens over C&D (good to soft; second start for new stable) four weeks ago but now gets a 7lb pull with that opponent and is attractively treated; won off 1lb higher this time last year; good chance provided he builds on latest effort.
