Hamilton Park Racecourse

There's five meetings across Britain and Ireland on Wednesday, including a six-race offering from Hamilton Park which starts at 18:20 and concludes shortly after the final contest at 21:00.

I've come up with a trio of Hamilton tips, including Moyola for Lucinda Russell in the three-year-old sprint.

Hamilton Tips

  • 18:20 - Peachey Carnehan e/w (4 places) @ 16/1
  • 19:20 - Moyola @ 7/1
  • 19:50 - Winter Crown @ 11/4

18:20 - Peachey Carnehan e/w (4 places) @ 16/1

The opener on the card is an amateur jockeys' handicap over six furlongs and it might pay to side with one of the two old boys in the line-up, the 10-year-old PEACHEY CARNEHAN for trainer Michael Mullineaux.

He's definitely a veteran but has already picked up two wins at Wolverhampton on the Tapeta this spring, showing that his enthusiasm for the game isn't yet waning.

He was beaten at big prices back on turf at Haydock and Leicester when racing from higher marks, but the assessor has soon found some leniency and he's now dropped 5lb quite quickly.

He shaped with some promise at Redcar (6f, soft) a fortnight ago, though ultimately found things unfolding a stride too quickly under today's rider Katie Garton as they eventually stayed on for fourth.

She can claim five pounds once more on his back now and the stiffer finish at Hamilton, where he has a win and a third in two previous visits, ought to play to his strengths.

With Betfred paying an extra place (four) on the race, this is an each-way suggestion.

19:20 - Moyola @ 7/1

Once more, six furlongs is the trip for this Class 4 handicap for three-year-olds that serves as one of the feature races on the evening at Hamilton.

Recent winners Mr Irrelevant, Dubai Hills and Bengurion are all respected, with the last-named unbeaten for Charlie Johnston after two novice wins on the all-weather and sure to improve further.

However, a chance is taken on MOYOLA for Lucinda Russell and in-form pilot Oisin Orr.

This Adaay gelding is a dual winner on the Tapeta at Newcastle over 5f & 6f - most recently in February off a mark of 65.

Back on turf he has produced third place finishes at Catterick (5f, soft) and Haydock (6f, soft) in recent months, those runs separated by a wind operation.

He made good progress from the rear to lead at Haydock last time but ultimately was no match for the improving winner, Hugo Palmer's filly Nariko, and duly conceded second spot in the final strides.

He is not yet exposed at this distance and sneaks into this contest off bottom-weight. He can outrun his likely odds.

19:50 - Winter Crown @ 11/4

The second of the Class 4s is for older horses and is a chance to side with WINTER CROWN over recent winners Catherine Chroi and Sacred Falls.

The former is flying, winning six of her last seven, but she just scrambled in over C&D (soft) a fortnight ago and has more to do having gone up another 3lb.

Winter Crown was back from a break when second at Redcar (6f, soft) 16 days ago. Julie Camacho's son of Invincible Spirit was ultimately no match for Dakota Gold there, the classy veteran sprinter making all and doing so quite comfortably.

Winter Crown came from off the pace to beat his remaining rivals, however, and should be much sharper after that first start since February.

His only previous turf win was on good-to-firm, so the faster surface is another plus for him and he remains open to doing better this summer on turf.
