Nick Shiambouros had no luck yesterday but gave a favourable mention to Squiggley who won at Epsom. Nick hopes to start the new week with a couple of winners from Bath and Hamilton...


"This consistent performer has been an admirable servant to trainer Jim Goldie"

Back Jack Dexter in the 15:50 at Hamilton

15:40 Bath - Atkinson Grimshaw


Atkinson Grimshaw should open his account in this interesting maiden.

This colt created a favourable impression on debut when finishing sixth to Viking Hoard at Salisbury earlier this month. He missed the break, but put in some good work in the closing stages and finished the race with good energy. I thought that was a promising effort from this son of Rio De La Plata.

He is the big improver in the race and is attractively priced at 3.45 on the exchange.

The current favourite is Spring Jig who is trading at 2.3411/8. He was a respectable second to Percy's Word at Kempton but I think he will be more effective in nurseries. His price is very thin in my opinion.


15:50 Hamilton - Jack Dexter


Jack Dexter should go close in this intriguing contest.

This hard knocking sprinter finished mid-pack in the Ayr Gold Cup earlier this month. He had a chance two furlongs from home, but began to feel the strain and weakened out of contention. This consistent performer has been an admirable servant to trainer Jim Goldie, and has two all important wins in heavy conditions which he will encounter today.

He is currently priced at 5.95/1 on the exchange and I have backed him at that price.

I backed Danzeno last time out when he finished second to Nameitwhatyoulike at York. Granted he missed the break, but held every chance a furlong from home and could not get by the game winner.

As previously stated, I do not like making excuses for beaten horses and I have layed him at his current price of 2.26/5 on the exchange. This is a tricky race and I will gladly let him win at that price.
