Dalgleish targets Hamilton

Keith Dalgleish bids to uphold his excellent strike-rate at Hamilton Park on Thursday as he saddles five runners at his local track.

The Carluke handler has already sent out seven winners this year at the Lanarkshire venue and Danot sets the ball rolling in the opening Irish Champions Weekend EBF Maiden Stakes.

He said: "He should have good chance as he was just touched off in a claimer at Catterick last time."

Next up for Dalgleish are Argaki and Incurs Four Faults in the Totepool Home Of Pool Betting Handicap.

He added: "We're bringing Argaki back a wee bit in trip and he's got course and distance winning form about this time last year. He was a cracking second over a mile at Hamilton last month but he has also won over a mile and a quarter at Ayr.

"Incurs Four Faults was unlucky at Hamilton a few days ago as he was keen and was pulled up after his saddle slipped. Before that he won nicely at Carlisle."

The feature race is the 10,000 Injured Jockeys Fund 50th Anniversary Handicap which sees a rare course runner for Saeed Bin Suroor in the shape of Kieren Fallon-ridden Emirates Galloper.

Jim Goldie bids to land the race for the second year running with A Southside Boy whose stablemate Hawdyerwheesht was successful for the Renfrewshire trainer 12 months ago.
