Timeform Daily: Thursday, Hamilton 15:40

Jim Goldie is the trainer of Another For Joe

Timeform offer a runner-by-runner guide to the Scottish Trophy Handicap at Hamilton on Thursday...

Henry Clay has yet to prove himself under testing conditions and looks vulnerable under his penalty, leaving the way open for C&D winner Another For Joe...

Henry Clay continued his gradual improvement when digging deep for third win at Warwick (11f) recently. May yet have more to offer under his penalty, but worryingly below par only previous try in the mud.

I'm Super Too's 4 wins have been gained here, including this race last year. Back on track when dead heating for second over this C&D in July and no surprise if he bounced back from a rare blip last time.

El Bravo won a 1½m maiden at Wolverhampton in 2009 for Gary Moore. Failed to add to tally in France last year and passed over following low-key start to life with this yard at Southwell recently.

Another For Joe was much improved when making all in 9f minor event here in June. Narrowly found one too good 2 of 3 starts in handicaps since and very much of interest having proven himself in testing conditions.

She's a Character's 3 wins have been gained at Doncaster, latest one on reappearance in April (1m). Got a bit closer to that form when second here in June, but well held last twice and yet to prove she stays this far.

Le Chat D'or has improved in a tongue tie this term, winning for second time in the mud at Newcastle (1m) in June. Not disgraced when making the frame last twice, and entitled to consideration again.

Jordaura resumed winning ways off reduced mark on AW at Lingfield (1¼m) in July. Not at best since, leaving Gay Kelleway following modest run in a seller recently. Engaged 4.00 Carlisle Wednesday.

Joshua The First was back on the up when scoring at Musselburgh (7f) in April. Things gradually gone downhill since, failing to beat a rival in the mud over C&D in July and not difficult to look elsewhere.

Timeform 1-2-3:
1. Another For Joe
2. I'm Super Too
3. Henry Clay

Timeform View: Henry Clay has yet to prove himself under testing conditions and looks vulnerable under his penalty, leaving the way open for C&D winner Another For Joe, who improved again when edged out at Doncaster last time and he gets the nod ahead of last year's winner I'm Super Too.
