15:35 Hamilton: Sodexo Live at Hamilton Park Live Handicap
The five-year-old Snash developed into a good sprinter last year, chalking up a couple of wins at Thirsk and Ayr when dropped back to what appears to be his optimum six-furlong-trip.
He won with authority on both occasions off marks of 82 and 87 on good ground (well-backed favourite off 87, so confidence was high off that mark).
He went on to finish down the field in the Ayr Gold Cup, but I think in the future he has a big handicap in him off higher marks.
Both those winning runs were when stepping back from seven furlongs, and he is doing the same thing here after he finished seven lengths off the pace over the longer distance at Thirsk 19 days ago.

Snash took a few runs to come to hand last year, and it's a similar story this season at a time his mark is down to 83.
I like that David Allan takes the ride (he was on board for his last win), and at 8/1+ he is just long enough to make him a worthwhile each-way punt. Suggested bet: Snash each-way in the 15:35 at Hamilton
