Horse racing tips: Angus McNae's best bets for Sunday

Fresh from a 4-1 winner last week, in-form tipster Angus McNae has four selections for Sunday's racing action at Listowel and Hamilton, all live on Racing TV.

Sonnyboyliston was a 4-1 winner for this column when the Ebor hero landed the Irish St Leger last week, and I have another four selections for Sunday. The quartet all run at meetings which will be shown live on Racing TV, and hopefully it will be another profitable day for us. Best of luck.

2.00 Listowel: French Made

This mare is a Grade Two winner and was placed in a Grade One in France. Even though she may never scale those heights again, this drop-in grade could see her back in the winners’ enclosure.

She returned from a lengthy lay-off at Galway in July and while she was well beaten, she was not given a hard time and was allowed to come home in her own time after tiring.

She has always shaped as if this trip of two and a half miles will suit her and she remains relatively unexposed having only had eight career starts. She can record yet another winner for the Willie Mullins team.

3.20 Hamilton: Kats Bob

Kats Bob remains a maiden but, based on his most recent effort at Thirsk, that may well be a tag that doesn’t stick with him for long.

After an 11-week absence, he finished an excellent second to Mr Trevor, despite being hampered a couple of times and with a clear passage, he would have gone very close to winning, and gets to race off the same mark here.

He has form at Hamilton and whilst I acknowledge that he is a tricky customer, I believe that factor will be built more into his price than his potentially lenient mark.

Iain Jardine has his team in good form and I am prepared to take a chance that this horse can shed his maiden tag here.

3.50 Hamilton: Albegone

A 6lb penalty for a recent success at Musselburgh should not be enough to stop this in-form gelding from scoring again.

He was an easy four-length winner at Musselburgh, and in a fast time, which makes him look well handicapped off a rating of 59.

That was his first career success and it came over five furlongs whilst wearing blinkers for the second time.

He had shaped well on the first occasion that he wore them, but that was over six furlongs, which stretched his stamina, and the fact he sticks to the minimum trip here is a plus.

Now that he is on a roll, and connections have found the key to him, he can win again off his lowly mark.

4.20 Hamilton: Mistamel

Mistamel is a very well-handicapped horse. His last win came off a mark of 62 in 2015 and now off a rating of 50, with real signs of a revival in his form, he makes some appeal at around 16-1.

He shaped really well here at Hamilton two starts ago when finishing third to Desert Quest. He was held up in a slowly run race and made a big move into contention before getting tired.

Following that effort, he had no chance from a slow start at Catterick. I like the fact that he returns to Hamilton where he clearly goes well and this weak class 6 handicap is well within his grasp, given his current mark and form, so he is worth chancing at double-figure odds.
