The Punt Daily: Tom Collins with three to follow on Wednesday
Laugh A Minute (3.30 Hamilton)
This is a match between David Elsworth's Sir Dancealot and Laugh A Minute and although the formerhas a clear advantage on Official Ratings and boasts some strong recent form, I'd favour the unexposed Laugh A Minute at the prices. Roger Varian's three-year-old son of Mayson will love the bit of give in the ground expected at Hamilton and ran a creditable fourth on his reappearance in the Pavillion Stakes at Ascot. The winner, Invincible Army, has since gone close in the Sandy Lane and Laugh A Minute looked potentially unlucky not to have a grabbed a place following interference in the last furlong. I like his chance here.
David O'Meara does well with his young handicappers and this unexposed maiden has looked unlucky since entering this sphere the last twice, potentially ruining his chance early on by pulling hard. The son of Azamour, who looks to stay all day, is open to plenty of improvement this year off his basement mark and the give in the ground will help. Hopefully Tudhope can get him settled early and, provided Akamento doesn't improve too much for his reappearance run, he looks the one to beat.
Jim Crowley has been ridingwinners at ease of late and he looks to have a great chance aboard Loujain at Kempton. There are a couple of question marks about whether this lightly raced four-year-old gelding puts it all in at the finish but he certainly has the ability to win a race of this nature and the move to an all-weather surface may help his chance. An extremely well-bred son of Dubawi, Loujain has disappointed when fancied in two handicaps this season but boasts some good three-year-old form and shouldn't be underestimated.
