Timeform pick out three bets from Hamilton and Chelmsford on Thursday...


Kingthistle - Hamilton 15:30

Kingthistle looked unlucky not to notch his first turf success when second at Beverley last month and remains potentially very well treated from just 1 lb higher in the weights here. He is taken to go one better for the Rebecca Menzies yard if arriving in the same form. The four-year-old could have most to fear from Gaelic Tiger, who can be forgiven a below-par effort at York last time and could still have more to offer after just four starts in his short career to date.

Tread Lightly - Hamilton 17:00

Tread Lightly pulled well clear of the remainder when runner-up on his handicap bow at Redcar 10 days ago and should prove a tough nut to crack off the same mark here. Indeed, that form leaves him 8 lb clear of the field on Timeform ratings here and, with the prospect of more to come after just four starts, Tread Lightly is fancied to see off the attentions of handicap debutant Archi's Affaire and can get off the mark in what looks a weak enough race of its kind.

Tricorn - Chelmsford 19:10

Tricorn looked a potentially smart prospect when completing the hat-trick at Newmarket last time, travelling smoothly into contention as the field entered the final two furlongs and always doing enough to hold off the sustained challenge of the runner-up in the closing stages. He has an 11 lb hike in the weights to contend with here, but showed enough last time to suggest he remains on a good mark and is taken to extend his winning sequence with a defeat of Mandarin.
