Mark Johnston loves a winner at Hamilton and that what we expect to happen in the 5:00 contest in the shape of the improving 3 year old If We Can Can, to be ridden once again by Joe Fanning and can be backed at the 11/4 available with BetFair.
The gelding looked as if he was crying out for a trip as a 2 year old and was slightly unlucky at Redcar when impeded at a vital time and was a no show there after. Once stepped up to 10 furlongs last time out back at Redcar he was seen to much better effect and pressed the leader before staying on well to score for Silvestre De Sousa. Though back a furlong in trip this afternoon and up 5lbs I doubt this is the ceiling of his ability and as long as they set a good gallop this afternoon he could be hard to beat once again. It might be the case that Joe Fanning looks to make the pace himself and we know how deadly he can be from the front.
Troop is interesting for the shrewd yard of Ann Duffield and Ger Lyons sends one over in the form of Viscount Wilson, but we will stick with If We Can Can to continue progress and score at the price of 11/4 with BetFair.
