Following a 5/2 winner yesterday, Steve Ryder is back with three tips from today's action.
The Michael Mullineaux trained SHESADABBER (best priced at 11/1) has been in consistently good form so far this season with form figures of 3741442216 and she should run well once again at Hamilton. The six-year-old made all to win by 1 ¼ lengths off a mark of 54 at Chepstow before finishing only 1 ½ lengths behind Red Allure last time over this course and distance in a bunched finish.
Shesadabber is drawn high in Stall 11 meaning that she should be able to try to make all against the stands side rail. She goes up in class from a 0-60 handicap to a 0-70 handicap but this previous cours and distance winner should run well with up to five places available.
The progressive SHAHNAZ (best priced at 7/2) is 2/2 at Hamilton and she arrives into this race in good form. The Gemma Tutty trained three-year-old won over this course and distance in June off a mark of 59 before following up a month later over the same course and distance off a mark of 63.
Shahnaz won on her penultimate start at Carlisle off a mark of 69 before finishing 2nd off a mark of 72 last time at Pontefract. She runs here off the same mark and she can hopefully make it 3/3 at Hamilton with Laura Coughlan, who has won twice and finished 2nd on her, retaining the ride.
17:13 Newton Abbot
The Paul Nicholls trained GAULOIUS (best priced at 7/4) has won all three of his starts at Newton Abbot since the application of cheekpieces and he should prove hard to beat once again. The six-year-old made a winning return from 81 days off the track in May in a maiden hurdle under Tom Buckley when fitted with cheekpieces for the first time. He then finished 3rd at Uttoxeter off a mark of 108 before winning a novices’ hurdle at this track under a penalty on his next start.
Gaulois won by 12 lengths under a double penalty over 2m2f here earlier this month and he should now hold strong claims back in a handicap off a mark of 116 at this track. Tom Buckley once again claims 3lbs and I expect him to make it four wins at the track in cheekpieces.
