Sunday racing best bets – Tips for Hamilton and Plumpton

Sunday racing best bets at Hamilton and Plumpton

A low-key Sunday is in store for punters as there are only two meetings going to post on the day and we’ve picked out our Sunday racing best bets at Hamilton and Plumpton.

Punters only have two meetings to puzzle over on Sunday where there is action both on the flat and over the sticks around the country and the day’s racing on the level takes place at Hamilton, while over the sticks there is a meeting at Plumpton.

The two fixtures going to post in the UK present 14 races between them and we’ve looked over both cards to pick out our Sunday racing best bets and tips at both fixtures.


1:45 Hamilton – Usave Business Energy Consultancy EBF Novice Stakes (GBB Race) Cl5 (2yo) 1m½f

SHARVARA makes the long trip north from Richard Hannon’s yard and the Kingman colt can make the journey worthwhile.

Hannon has had only four runners at the Scottish track – two have won – and the selection stepped up on a fair debut effort to finish third at Thirsk when last seen, still looking a shade raw and there’s likely more to come from him as he gains further experience.

Both runs to date have come over seven furlongs but he could improve stepping up to one mile now while the stiff finish at this track could suit given he looked one that might appreciate more of a test when last seen and every chance he can get off the mark at the third attempt.

Sunday racing best bets. Richard Hannon can get amongst the winners at Hamilton.

2:40 Plumpton – Friends & Family Remembering Norman Sharpe Handicap Hurdle Cl3 (3yo+ 0-130) 2m

CONSTANCIO won over this course and distance last October and it might be worth chancing Donald McCain’s charge to get back on the scoresheet here.

After a slow start to the current campaign the Authorized gelding has been in better form of late although he turned in a tardy round of jumping when finishing fourth at Sedgefield earlier in the month behind Lucky Robin and he’ll need to jump better this time around.

He may have paid the price of helping to force a strong pace on that occasion though and could do better ridden with some more restraint in a race where there’s plenty of competition for the lead. He’s also back on his last winning mark here and with proven form at the venue he ought to go well so every chance he can resume winning ways under Brian Hughes.

3:10 Plumpton – Peter Earl Memorial Handicap Chase Cl4 (4yo+ 0-120) 2m1f

ROMANOR is going through a good spell of form at present, winning twice at Stratford and Uttoxeter and running well in defeat when thwarted in a hat-trick attempt back at Stratford latest behind Larch Hill.

Seamus Mullins’ charge was beaten around four lengths that day but pulled clear of the rest and a repeat of that run could be good enough to see him quickly resume winning ways from only 1lb higher than last time.

Most of his rivals appear to have something to prove at present and given his current spell of form he looks to hold very solid claims of a return to winning ways.

Sunday racing best bets. Seamus Mullins can get a win out of Romanor at Plumpton.

3:20 Hamilton – racingtv.com Handicap Cl5 (3yo 0-70) 6f

IRIS DANCER has made the frame in all five starts since joining this yard and the Kodiac filly can get back to winning ways here.

A winner for her previous handler when scoring at Ripon in May she has been beaten by less than one length in each of her last three starts, most recently when denied only by International Girl over course and distance at the beginning of this month.

Her earlier short-head second behind Glorious Rio here over the minimum trip has seen both that winner and the third win since so the form looks solid and she remains capable of winning from this sort of mark having only been pushed up 1lb.

Another big run wouldn’t come as a shock and Tristan Davidson’s charge ought to go close again.

4:20 Hamilton – Alex Mac Donald Memorial Celebration Handicap Cl6 (4yo+ 0-60) 1m4f

DE MAZZARO has made the frame in five of his last six starts, winning three of those and the So You Think gelding can register another win here.

Tristan Davidson’s charge is already a course and distance winner, scoring here in August to add to earlier wins at Musselburgh and Nottingham when beating Ice Canyon by a half-length at this venue where he had a subsequent winner behind.

That one did reverse the form over further at Musselburgh latest but the selection wasn’t disgraced having tried to make most of the running and he may appreciate dropping back in trip this time. He can race off the same mark here and there’d be no surprise to see him turning in another big effort back at this track.
