Daily Multiples: A 25/1 Hamilton double and an entertaining World Cup qualifier

Hamilton races
Both of Alan Dudman's selections today will enjoy the uphill finish at Hamilton

Al Dudman has a boosted 25/1 evening double at Hamilton, while the 6/1 multi-sport wager includes goals for both teams in the Norway v Netherlands clash...

"He was shaken up down the straight and took a while to get going (hitting three times his price higher in-play), but once he hit top stride, he had a bit more in hand than the winning margin suggested."

Dalgleish to score with Euro

Leg 1: Back Euro Implosion @ 13/2 in the 18:20 at Hamilton

Scotland is the destination for Wednesday night's double and we're looking at a couple of trainers that are in form starting with Carluke handler Keith Dalgleish. Racegoers will no doubt be keeping a keen on eye on the national team's fixture against Denmark too - a match previewed by Frankie Monkhouse.

His Euro Implosion has improved this season, especially at Hamilton with three wins from 62, 66 and 68 thus far - and he might not be finished yet. The Sportsbook agrees, with his price cut from 15/2 to 13/2, but it's still a decent figure to get us going.

Euro Implosion has raced from 1m3f to 1m6f and looks an all-out galloper as he usually dictates from the front. There's every chance he could be granted an easy lead in this, and we've seen at Hamilton this term that front-runners do well.

He is in calmer waters today having previously contested the Lanark Silver Bell and a decent Sunday Series Handicap in July. He made the running in that over 1m6f and finished third in a good time, with Euro making it a thorough test. If you are backing him in a single, he represents a decent lay out trade too.

Easterby can keep the winners flowing with final leg

Leg 2: Back Temper Trap @ 15/8 in the 19:50 at Hamilton

Trainer Tim Easterby recently celebrated another century for winners in a season and if you subscribe to yard form, his team fired in four winners over the two day meeting at Ripon which included a treble yesterday. Easterby is 104 not out.

He is represented by Temper Trap in the final race at Hamilton, with a return to the track a huge plus.

We have to ignore his poor run at Pontefract on his latest racecourse appearance, a race in which he lost a shoe and met some interference. I'd also offer up the ground as an excuse as officially the going was given as good, but times suggested it was more like heavy following the rain.

The 4yo seems well versed with Hamilton's stiff climb as he landed a CD handicap at the back-end of July. He sat on the pace, which was the correct thing to do as the middle sectional times indicated a race with a steady tempo with a very slow fourth furlong at 14.03secs. He was shaken up down the straight and took a while to get going (hitting three times his price higher in-play), but once he hit top stride, he had a bit more in hand than the winning margin suggested.

Rated just 55, the forecast quicker ground is also a plus.

Daily Multi-Sports Double

Leg 1: Back Rekero - 16:05 Gowran @ 11/4

Timeform says: "Rekero shaped with promise on debut and seems sure to improve on that initial experience. He is out of a high-class mare and he stayed on without really posing a threat on debut at Cork in May, but he won't need to improve much on that form to open his account now."

Leg 2: Back both Norway and Netherlands to Score (KO: 19:45) @ 4/6

Dab Fitch says: "Louis van Gaal is back in charge of the Dutch for a third spell. He starts with a tough opening game away in Norway, with both teams currently trailing the Group G leaders Turkey by a point. The Norwegians have the threat of Erling Haaland in attack and both teams to score looks a safe bet."
