In a new role as horse racing tipster for OneBet, Sarah Shannon is back to defend her Tipster Challenge title in the seven-race meet at Hamilton.
Shannon has taken a chance with second favourite Gulf Of Poets (4:10) for her Nap of the Day, which can score double points for the Betting Gods sponsored competition.
By contrast, bettingexpert’s Stephen Harris has been more conservative by promoting the chances of odds-on Amy Blair (3:40), who won on this course just five days ago.
bettingexpert: Lina’s Star
Comes from a yard with a very strong hand with juveniles and can make a winning debut if the market vibes are strong.
OneBet: Miss Bar Beach
It’s hard to pick a winner in a race of two-year-old’s, but Keith Dalgleish’s Miss Bar Beach looks to have the best form, with the filly finishing second her last outing at Beverley.
bettingexpert: Souls In The Wind
Drops right down in class after showing some ability in Eire for his astute new yard.
OneBet: Don Valentino
Three-year-old Don Valentino has had a strong start to the season, with a fourth and third place finished and will be looking to add to trainer David O’Meara’s win record for June when he takes to the track at Hamilton.
bettingexpert: Ted’s Brother
Had an excuse last time but had been running well in defeat previously on the AW and he has plenty of soft ground form in the book.
OneBet: High Expectations
Gordon Elliott has made the move to flat training this summer, and it’s his charge High Expectations who looks the one to beat in this race. Winning his first outing of the season at Ayr, he is only upped 5lbs for his run here.
bettingexpert: Amy Blair (Nap of the Day)
Made all to win over a furlong further here last week and is expected to follow up despite a 6lb penalty.
OneBet: Amy Blair
Favourite Amy Blair has already had a successful start to the season at Hamilton, having won his last outing here just five days ago. The distance of the race is slightly shorter this time round, but it should be another victory here.
bettingexpert: Archie’s Advice
Caught the eye from a poor position last time out and has been given a chance by the handicapper.
OneBet: Gulf Of Poets (Nap of the Day)
Trained by Mark Easterby, the five-year-old comes into this race and should pick up his hat-trick this afternoon.
bettingexpert: Honeysuckle Lil
Won on soft ground the last time she came to Hamilton and has been running herself fit in three starts so far at Ripon this season.
OneBet: Ancient Astronaut
The four-year-old has had a strong start to the season with a strong six-furlong win at Thirsk, and despite finishing second last time out at Newmarket, he should be able to pick up a victory here.
bettingexpert: Perfect Words
Is now back below his last winning mark and shaped better than the bare result last time out.
OneBet: Roy’s Legacy
With eleven runs under his belt this year, he has already picked up three victories, his last coming at Chester over a similar distance to this. He should be able to cope with the going at Hamilton and is the one to watch here.
