The betting for Tuesday’s premier race is headed by two three-year-old and both bring plenty to the table. Victory Command enjoyed a bountiful two-year-old season, running in several prestigious Graded race. Mark Johnston’s charge has been dropping like a stone down the handicap since the turn of the year and travels to Hamilton on the back of a decent sixth in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot.
Coolagh Forest has been much more productive in 2019, winning both of his starts to date. The first coming in a super competitive handicap at Musselburgh, before Richard Fahey’s charge secured very easy victory around the same venue, clocking an impressive RPR of 96 in the process.
There’s a good chance Coolagh Forest will take this career-high mark in his stride on Tuesday and he could claim victory. However, the track here is rather unique – completely different to that the favourite prospered on at Musselburgh – and NEVER BE ENOUGH is favoured to make it three from three at Hamilton for local trainer, Keith Dalgleish.
Dalgleish’s mare first came to Hamilton as a three-year-old, where she finished third on just her second career start. After a difficult reappearance, Never De Enough struck at odds of 12/1 to win over course-and-distance in May and repeated that feat last time out, outstaying her fellow fillies on the uphill run to the finishing line.
Inbetween those victories there have been a couple of decent runner-up finishes over ten furlongs. Never Be Enough’s proven staying ability over a-mile-and-a-quarter obviously pays dividends here at at Hamilton and Dalgleish wouldn’t turn her out so quickly if he didn’t think she was in the form of her life. Never Be Enough may be back in with the boys and be carrying a five-pound penalty, but I’m banking on course form proving the deciding factor and Tom Eaves’ mount looks to have an excellent chance of sealing a Hamilton hat-trick.
