Hamilton Tips December 12

Walkers Earthworks BM58 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Hamilton Value Bet - Race 5 No. 9 Ready Set Tap

The five-year-old was making her fifteenth career start when she broke through for her first win in a maiden over this course and distance just over a month ago.

The form of that contest looks solid enough with the third losing out narrowly at Swan Hill subsequently and the sixth home breaking his maiden on his next outing. 

The application of blinkers saw the mare register a narrow margin victory last time out and she had placed on both previous starts at this venue.

The switch to being ridden from off the pace also appeared to suit on that occasion and regular pilot Neil Farley is expected to use similar tactics in this contest. 

Ready Set Tap looks to be making her first start against previous winners at a decent level and with an inside barrier, she may prove capable of springing a surprise.

Hamilton Best Bet - Race 8 No. 13 Belluna

Trainer Robert Hickmott boasts a 40% strike-rate with his runners at Hamilton and his representative has shown good form since placing third in a Restricted 58 handicap here in October.

That effort came on a Good 4 track and Belluna has gone on to deliver a win and two second-place finishes from three subsequent outings.

The win came when saluting by two lengths in a 1462m Benchmark 58 handicap at Kilmore early last month and she heads into this event on the back of a narrow defeat over 1500m at Mornington.

The daughter of Puissance de Lune raced on a Soft 5 surface at Mornington and with that in mind, any overnight rain would be no issue. 

The five-year-old is a versatile type, with the mare racing prominently or on the speed in recent starts and she looks capable of delivering a victory here.
