Evening Racenight – Racing Preview

By Gordon Brown

TOM EAVES is looking forward to his ride on Ryan’s Party in the feature race at Hamilton Park on Wednesday night.

The in-form partnership face five rivals in the £20,000 Weatherbys Bloodstock Pro 2-Y-O Series Final Nursery Handicap over six-furlongs.

Eaves, who rode the 200,000 breeze-up purchase to a course and distance victory in maiden company 15-days ago, said: “He has really started to mature and we like him – his form has a bit of a solid look as the second has won since. That was his first run back after being gelded so he can only get better as he gains experience and he should stay further.”

The opposition includes top-weight I’m A Gambler, already the winner of a nursery at the Lanarkshire venue in late July.

There is also a decent renewal of the Flower Of Scotland Fillies’ Handicap, which sees Iris Dancer appear for the fifth time since joining Tristan Davidson.

The Cumbrian raider has been runner-up on her three most recent trips to Hamilton Park and was an unlucky short-head loser over five-furlongs on Friday night.
