RACING TV’s GORDON BROWN podcast racing preview for the Aspire Cleaning & Facilities Raceday

Dual-champion jockey William Buick makes a rare trip to Hamilton Park for three rides on Tuesday. Buick, leading Flat pilot for the last two season and who was last at the South Lanarkshire venue in June 2022, rode a treble at the track in May of the same year. This calendar year he has already had 56 winners and has recorded six victories from 20 rides at Hamilton Park. Likely market leader Simply Blue is his first ride in the opening EBF Maiden Stakes. Trained by David Loughnane, the £180,000 yearling was only pipped by a nose at Leicester a month ago. Next up is Andrew Balding-trained Argon Castle in the £30,000 Aspire Cleaning Company Almada Mile Handicap. The Berkshire-raider, also towards the head of the betting, just failed by a new in a bunch finish at Goodwood in May. Course and distance winners Dutch Decoy and Pisanello are among the opposition in the feature race of the afternoon. Philip Kirby's Lady Bouquet, another favourite, is Buicks final ride in the Every Race live On Racing TV Handicap over five-furlongs. The filly is unpenalised for opening her account on turf in an apprentice dash at Beverley last Tuesday. Meanwhile Jordan Electrics, now with Jim Goldie, bids for a seventh course success in the Aspire Hamilton-Park Handicap. He shoulders a hefty 10st 7Ib, which includes a 4Ib penalty for his latest strike on Saints & Sinners night just five days ago.
