- CMD Recruitment Bath Handicap (Class 6)
- 1m 2f 37y, Good to Soft
- 11 Runners
- Surface: Turf
In the best form of his career and has the opportunity to record a hat-trick at this distance today. Scored at Nottingham on latest start where he was ridden positively. Strong jockey booking. One to beat.
Still a maiden after 10 races but there were signs at the back end of last season that he was close to recording his first win. Was disappointing on his return at Yarmouth (1m2f) where he was sixth of seven runners. Needs to bounce back.
Looking for his first win since June 2017 but has been running consistently well this season, including on his latest start when he was second of seven over this distance at Brighton. Each-way claims.
Has won on the AW at Lingfield over this distance but he was a long way down the field on his only turf start to date. Was fourth on his latest outing on the AW at Wolverhampton (1m1½f). One to watch.
Opened the season with success at this distance at Chepstow on fast ground. He has failed to follow up his victory over his last two runs but he has a better chance off this mark. Cheekpieces on for first time. One to consider.
Won twice last season, including at this distance at Lingfield. Has some solid form on softer ground. This will be her first run since September though so she may just need it on her return to action.
Finished a respectable third of nine at Brighton (1m2f) last time on his return to turf. His best form has come on faster ground so connections will be hoping it dries out. Others preferred.
Improved for the step up in trip last time at Wolverhampton (1m1½f) on the AW with victory coming in an 11 runner field. There could be much more to come from him now so he is one for the shortlist here.
Looking for his first success on turf since 2011 but has scored on the AW since then. His last two starts on the Tapeta at Wolverhampton were respectable, including when third of 12 over 1m1½f. Others preferred here though.
Was third at this course over the slightly shorter trip of 1m last month where he was only ¾l behind the winner. This step up in distance should suit him as he was staying on strongly last time. One to consider.
A C&D winner but that was back in May 2017 and since then his form has dropped significantly. Returned to action at Chepstow (1m2f) back in April where he came home 11th of 14. Difficult to fancy here.
