Divine Magic is Keith Hamer's best Tuesday bet and he has a tip for every race at every meeting.

Divine Magic won in such good style at Leicester this month that a successful return to the East Midlands venue would be no surprise.

The Marco Botti-trained three-year-old looked to have plenty in hand when drawing away in the last of the seven furlongs to score by three lengths from Wolflet and justify favouritism.

The handicapper has put her up 6lb for what was the daughter of Farhh's first career success from five starts.

Divine Magic did well, because she was bumped at the start and was squeezed out briefly. However, she recovered to win in authoritative fashion and can double up in the Follow Us On Twitter At leicesterraces Fillies' Handicap.

Couldn't Could She can build on an encouraging first run in more than four months to take the Watch Free Racing Replays On Handicap at Brighton.

Adam West's six-year-old stuck on well when going down by three-quarters of a length by Gold Souk at Lingfield.
