18:10 Bath Wed 3 July 2019
Dual C&D winner taking a 0-60 handicap here two starts ago under a positive ride; failed to follow up that 4L win dropped to the minimum trip here last time. Will appreciate a return to this distance, needs to cope with this mark, better expected.
Last two starts have signalled that a return to winning ways may not be far away; poorly placed when third on her penultimate run, hampered (not clear run) last time. Both those runs have come here, this trip suits; just below her last winning mark.
First turf run for this Wolverhampton 7f winner who now tries sprinting for the first time. Usually positively ridden he looked a little awkward last time at Kempton (hence the first-time headgear); interesting contender despite trip doubts.
Has looked to gather some of his old zeal of late especially at Brighton in his last two starts; finished third there yesterday trying to make all. Has won here three times including over C&D; back in the right grade off a workable mark.
Back with former trainer having had a brief sojourn with Robert Cowell who has an easing mark to work with. Best not judged on her only run this year (hampered start/needed run); won't be a surprise to a step forward, market move should be noted.
Four-time course winner (two over C&D) he's already added to those numbers this year with a C&D win under today's rider. Struggled a little of late off this mark, ran a little better last time without looking at his best, in essence more needed.
C&D winner who got back to her best at the start of the year to score over 7f at Wolverhampton off a 3lb higher mark. Consistent enough since then, badly hampered (unseated rider) her two starts ago; fair run last time; on balance others appeal more.
Eight-race maiden who showed his first real form on his debut for this yard over C&D (appeared to relish the firm ground). Will appreciate a return to a similar scenario today after running poorly on heavy ground at Nottingham last time.
Twice a C&D winner he's been here 22 times now but doesn't really look one to be interested in at the moment all of his eight runs this year being well below-par. Even off this basement mark he's best watched for now until showing revival signs.
Irish raider (trainer 2-20 GB Flat last five seasons) who has yet to win a race (lightly-raced), finishing a respectable sixth in a big-field Naas 6f handicap last time. Off a basement mark here; worth keeping an eye out for a positive market vibes.
