Bets Of The Day: Oh Mary Oh Mary the big improver

Hamilton Oh Mary Oh Mary
Today's best bet Oh Mary Oh Mary runs at Hamilton

Nick Shiambouros returns to the tipping chair with a couple of selections from Sandown and Hamilton...

"She outran her odds, and looks more than capable of landing a race of this nature"

Back Oh Mary Oh Mary at 5.85/1 in the 17:25 at Hamilton

Time to Discover

15:15 Sandown - Discovery Island

Discovery Island will do for me in this interesting maiden.

This Dubawi gelding ran well on debut when finishing a close second to Sound Of Cannons at HQ earlier this month. He put in a strong challenge inside the final furlong, and would have prevailed in a few more strides. The front three finished a mile ahead of the remainder. I thought this was a super effort ,and the experience will not be lost on him. He is open to significant improvement, and is fairly priced at 3.55.

Debutant Palace Pier is the favourite at 2.747/4. This Kingman colt was an expensive yearling purchase and is out of a Dam that is a half-sister to the talented Bonfire. He will get further in time, but should be ready to do himself justice.

Come on Mary

17:25 Hamilton - Oh Mary Oh Mary

Oh Mary Oh Mary is my idea of the winner of this novice stakes.

This filly caught the eye on debut when finishing third to Mischief Star at Catterick earlier this month. Despite missing the break, she made up a lot of ground and finished the race with good energy. She outran her odds, and looks more than capable of landing a race of this nature. I think she has a lot more to offer, and is reasonably priced at 5.85/1.

Flylikeaneagle heads the market at 3.39/4. He made all when winning a Beverley maiden and should move forward again. He has to carry a penalty for that success which could prove problematic. Another bid from the front is on the cards, but I think the selection will cut him down.
