Today's Racing News: Tuesday serves up a treat at Hamilton on Ebor eve

Hamilton is the home for our race of the day feature.
Hamilton is a good card for punters on Tuesday with some excellent Class 3 action.

Welcome to Tuesday! Our man Daryl Carter is on hand to guide you through all the racing action up and down the country on the eve of the York Ebor Festival.

"Back on a more conventional track and in this much weaker contest (on paper), it's hard to ignore his claims, and he is easily the most progressive of the three-year-olds in the field."

There are plenty of punting pointers for Tuesday below, but first, you need to know where you can claim your cash. Wolverhampton and Hamilton are your afternoon cards while Carlisle and Leicester claim the evening action.

Sligo is the sole Irish meeting on Tuesday and hosts jump racing today.

Trainer Michael Bell has been in fine form in the last 14 days and has scored with four of his 19 debutants at Wolverhampton (21%).

He has booked Oisin Murphy (25% on AW together) for debutant Heartbreaker 2.255/4 in the 14:35 Sky Sports Racing HD Virgin 535 Fillies' Novice Median Auction Stakes.

Trainer Richard Fahey's form figures in the 13:15 EBF Maiden Stakes at Hamilton read 1, 3, 1, 4, 3, 2 he saddles Buckshaw Village 5.59/2.

Trainer Sir Michael Stoute has a rare runner at Carlisle in the 19:05 MansionBet Proud To Support British Racing Fillies' Novice Stakes with Swoon 2.01/1, and he scored on his last visit to this venue, which was the first since 2019 - see the stat of the day.

At Sligo, trainer Willie Mullins has two runners and is operating at a 40% strike rate in the last 14 days with six winners from his last 14 runners. He saddles Valley Breeze 6.05/1 at 17:45 and Champagne Problem 2.01/1 at 19:45.

At Leicester the Marcus Tregoning pair Rawyaan 3.613/5 in the 16:55 and Zuhair 3.185/40 in the 18:55 will prove popular, but the trainer is zero for six with his two-year-olds at this course (first mentioned) and hasn't had a winner at the track since 2018 (one for ten).

Race of the day

Hamilton's 15:25 Book Our On-Site Hotel Scottish Trophy Handicap looks like a right Tuesday treat. A highly competitive field of 12 will go to post, and three-year-olds have won four of the last six.

Six-year-old Platinum Card is heading the market when writing and saddles a five-pound penalty for his impressive victory in a three runner race at Ayr eight days ago.

He is very much on the upgrade and has a Maiden win here back in June under his belt. Although he has won on quick ground connections wouldn't want to see it dry up too much as he seems much more at home on a softer surface.

This mark of 90 in a more competitive environment asks another question, and giving seven pounds to some progressive three-year-olds won't be easy.

It was a lot to ask of Legendary Day to make his first attempt at Newmarket and upped to Class 3 company, a winning one, but he ran with extreme credit to finish third.

That was just his fourth turf start, and the handicapper has left him on the same mark, and the fifth and ninth have both given the form a boost.

Back on a more conventional track and in this much weaker contest (on paper), it's hard to ignore his claims, and he is easily the most progressive of the three-year-olds in the field.

In receipt of seven pounds from his elders, he can continue his progression today and can claim back our Newmarket cash. He is a recommended bet (again).

Just Hiss is dangerously well-handicapped, and he shaped as though a return to form was imminent at Thirsk when rallying late on. It's interesting connections switch out a claimer for a more experienced jockey.

This is his time of year, and he is now seven pounds lower than his last winning handicap mark. Should he take to this course, he could be a big danger but may lack the speed of his younger rivals (I hope).
