You should never underestimate trainer form when deciding what to bet on and all three of today’s selections hail from yards who are banging out the winners.

Paul Midgley couldn’t train a winner for toffee in the first part of 2016 – just one of his first 84 runners this year obliged – but he’s turned the corner of late with three winners from his last 17 runners (18%) for a £1 level-stakes profit of £11.50. There’s no reason to think the good spell won’t continue as he has a host of well handicapped horses to go to war with and June is traditionally the time to follow the stable runners blind, with his record this month since 2012 standing at an impressive 30 winners from 165 bets for a £1 level-stakes profit of £35.50.

He has a couple of runners at Hamilton this afternoon and Merry Banter, who runs in the opening 5f novice should make a bold bid to follow up last month’s Catterick success. However, the form doesn’t amount to much and now penalised I’m reluctant to put her up as a bet, whereas stablemate GROUNDWORKER makes plenty of appeal in the following 5f handicap for apprentice riders (2.30pm). A winner off much higher marks than today’s when trained by Sylvester Kirk, he showed a return to top form was imminent when finishing third at this track last week and can go two better here.
