Tuesday’s Racing Tip: Sir Maxi looks a million dollars at Hamilton

Days like today don’t come around often in my world. A maximum bet day. It’s these kind of bets that make or break a tipster and his profit portfolio. Losing runs where small stakes are advised are well worth enduring if big point selection do the business.

The horse in question today is one that has already filled the pages on this website. Sir Maximillan was due to take his chance in the Wokingham Stakes at Royal Ascot a couple of weeks ago but failed to get in the race by just two spaces. Luckily we got our money back on that 33/1 bet and he’s back ready to roar in a Conditions Stakes at Hamilton this afternoon (3:45).

This is a quick turnaround for the horse who only ran at Newcastle on Saturday but he’s come out of that race fine according to Tim Pitt, who has huge faith in this horse. That run at Newcastle, where he finished last of six in a Group Three, can be forgiven. It was a step too far for a horse rated 95 and the way the race unfolded never suited his change of gear.

What makes me believe that this is a horse that can win more races is the way he sauntered clear of a very good field at Chester at their May meeting. He powered clear of Caspian Prince (subsequent Epsom Dash winner) & Top Boy (big York handicap winner) in very impressive fashion. His mark of 95 is very workable but a lack of decent opportunities in sprint handicaps has meant Pitt has had to go down the Conditions Stakes route.

This is a very weak contest with little worthwhile form on offer from his rivals. He should have the class to travel powerfully behind the early pace set by Tangerine Trees and out gun his rivals with his change of gear. This is a big boy bet. Get on with five point win stakes at 9/4.
