Hamilton hails hero Higgins.

World snooker champion John Higgins is guest of honour at Hamilton Park today.

The quick-thinking Hamilton executive have named a race after the Wishaw wizard and I trust Higgins will be presenting the trophy to Lucy Tufty's connections.

Jeff Pearce's soft ground specialist travels up from Newmarket with first- rate credentials, having hacked up at Ripon last month, and Lucy Tufty (3.0) gets a confident vote.

Ballantrae Boy (4.30) was well handled by apprentice John McAuley to land some good bets at Musselburgh yesterday, and although not ideally drawn, this stiffer track will suit Jim Goldie's in-form sprinter.

Allan Mackay gave Chester Cup gamble Silence In Court a beautiful ride in a real roughhouse event yesterday and travels to Scotland to partner newcomer Tempramental and old favourite Askern in the Sunday Mail Handicap.

However, the soft ground is against the Hugh O'Donnell owned grey and Stormless (4.00) relishes these tough conditions.

Over at Chester, the admirable Further Flight (3.10) should go close in a race in which he was pipped last year by Royal Court.

Superior Premium (3.40) ran well behind Carranita at Haydock on Saturday and is clearly in good heart.

Erupt (2.10) has a favourable inside draw in an extremely competitive opener, while Scorned (2.40) looks the part in the Dee stakes
