Today's Horse Racing Tips: Consistent type can strike at Hamilton

Today's racing tips for Hamilton.

Rebel Redemption (advised at 3/1) finished second at Hamilton yesterday; the fourth time this month that a selection has filled the runner up spot!

Racing takes place at the Scottish track again today, and I have picked out just one bet. Unexposed three-year-olds with a weight-for-age allowance can sometimes prove tricky to assess in handicaps for horses aged three and up, so I was pleased to see a sprint race for older horses on today’s card.

I tend to spend around an hour-and-a-half to two hours studying a race and go through a whole host of steps before making my final selection. In low grade races such as the one I’ve worked on today, it can often be easier to rule out certain runners allowing me to focus on just a handful with a chance. 

Course form at Hamilton is important given the nature of the track, and races often develop near to the stands’ side rail, favouring those drawn in the middle or higher.

Hamilton Tip

14:55 – 6f Handicap (Class 6)

As a prominent racer with a high draw, CARLOVIAN (NAP – 1 point win bet at 13/2) could well find himself in the right place to strike. His win at Catterick last time out was his second of this season having scored at Thirsk earlier in the summer. He showed a tremendous attitude and stayed on strongly for both of those wins, and he has also run well in defeat on several occasions in recent months.

Mark Walford’s seven-year-old has shown that he handles the track having been placed twice here before. Raised 4lbs for his win 13 days ago, Walford has opted to book Harry Russell for the ride in order to take 7lbs off the horse’s back. With two wins last year off marks of 50 and 52, this son of Acclamation looks very fairly treated today and is set to encounter his optimum ground conditions.

Harry’s Ridge, who has been running well without winning, looks the biggest danger and is likely to go off as favourite.
