Wednesday's Hamilton best bets and racing tips: Sir Benedict to get back in winners enclosure

Planet Sport tipsters love a bit of evening racing in Scotland, so Hamilton will be the venue for their selections on Wednesday, August 31.

Always a good day at Hamilton racecourse, and it looks like the weather will be set fine too, so it's a great time to give you a few winners.

Don't forget, you can get all the latest racecards and results by using the Planet Sport live centre, but first here's a quick list of our tips.


17:20 (Hamilton) Fermanagh

17:55 (Hamilton) Sir Benedict

18:25 (Hamilton) Coco Jack

18:55 (Hamilton) Makfoul

19:25 (Hamilton) Gentle Ellen

19:55 (Hamilton) Clan Jock

18:25 (Hamilton) Coco Jack

Coco Jack can defy top weight in the Live Betting Odds Pro 2-Y-O Series Final Nursery Handicap.

A three-time winner already this season for George Scott, Coco Jack was last seen lining up in a competitive contest at Goodwood, trying to give weight to all but one of his 11 rivals and he was certainly not disgraced in fourth.

Beaten less than a length, Coco Jack just got run out of third in the dying strides over seven furlongs and while he has triumphed over that trip previously, perhaps Scott thinks a drop down well help his cause off his rating of 90.

17:55 (Hamilton) Sir Benedict

Sir Benedict has been knocking on the day of late and his time can come in the Online Betting Handicap.

He suffered a troubled passage when third on his penultimate start and was possibly a bit unlucky subsequently when bumping into Vince Lombardi, who held him at bay by just under three lengths.

His current mark of 64 looks viable and he would not need to find too much more to land this.
