14.15 (Hamilton) Simply Blue

Simply Blue can kickstart what could be a profitable afternoon for followers of William Buick, as the Godolphin number one makes a rare visit to Hamilton.

His first mount of the day sets a strong standard in the EBF Maiden Stakes following a promising effort on his second start.

Despite still looking far from the finished article, David Loughnane’s juvenile kept on well when going down by just a nose to Blinky, who ran in the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot next time out.

Third-placed Carrados has since performed with credit at Goodwood and Simply Blue is clearly held in high regard, as he holds an entry for the Group One Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh.


15:15 (Hamilton) Aragon Castle


Buick will also be aboard Aragon Castle for Andrew Balding in the Aspire Cleaning Company Almada Mile Handicap.

The three-year-old has been knocking on the door of late and has a fantastic chance to register a deserved victory off a mark just 1lb higher than his neck defeat at Goodwood last month.

The two-time champion jockey finishes his trip north of the border on Phil Kirby’s Lady Bouquet who showed a likeable attitude when scoring at Beverley recently and can follow up in the Every Race Live On Racing TV Handicap.


15:45 (Hamilton) Winter Crown

Winter Crown deserves a change of fortune in the Aspire At Hamilton-Park Handicap following two solid seconds at Redcar and this venue.

His latest conqueror Jordan Electrics has since obliged again here in a higher grade and Julie Camacho’s gelding is the type to carry weight well.


16:15 (Hamilton) Victory Shout

Victory Shout suffered a blip at Thirsk last time out but warrants another chance in the John Armstrong Memorial Celebration’ Handicap.

Karl Burke’s Frankel colt had previously been runner-up on two trips to Hamilton and can get back on track
