Hamilton Tips 10/11/2023


Race 1 No. 5 TOLERANCE- ($1.70) 

TOLERANCE can go close in the opening event of the day at Hamilton. The four-year-old has had the four career starts and has placed at his past couple. The most recent of those came at Pakenham and he settled back in the eight-horse field before producing the fastest last 200m to finish 3rd. He gives the impression that the extra 200m will suit and this looks easier. 




Race 5 No. 6 YIASOU- ($3.85) 

YIASOU can go a couple of spots better than a debut effort that saw him finish 3rd at Warrnambool on October 23. The Symon Wilde-trained galloper was well beaten that day by the winner, who led and pinched a break. He settled back before producing the fastest last 200m over the 1100m journey. 1400m looks suitable and he should be strong late in the piece with Dean Yendall to ride. 




Race 8 No. 1 GRASSMERE JEWEL- ($2.40) 

We close off with a BenchMark 58 over the 1100m and GRASSMERE JEWEL should be hard to beat. The five-year-old has won three of five career starts and resumed at Warrnambool on October 23, finishing 3rd behind Longtimedreaming. She led them up that day before being run down late in the piece. Second up last time, the five-year-old improved seven lengths to score at Hamilton on a wet track but will be able to handle a Good surface. Brad Rawiler rides and the pair draw barrier 3. 




Race 3 No. 9 ROCKLEA- ($8) 

ROCKLEA can be an improver in Race 3. The Tom Dabernig-trained galloper has had the two career runs and was solid on debut with a 3rd at Bendigo in a race that provided a number of future winners. He resumed at Warrnambool on October 23 and settled handy before just running out of steam late in the piece when 5th. The four-year-old will strip fitter for this and gets the large claim for Jordyn Weatherley.
