14:10 Bath Wed 7 August 2019
Has a C&D win to her name, and ran as well as she has done for a while when third in a better contest than this at Ascot on her latest start. Would only need a repeat of that to get involved and she looks one of the main players.
C&D winner that's a regular at the track, last five starts all coming here and after a good spring, she rather seems to have gone off the boil. Needs to return to her better form if she's to have a chance today.
Unxposed gelding that made just about all to win at Leicester last time out, holding on well despite drifting a bit under pressure. Different track to cope with but clearly going the right way, and has to be taken seriously.
Has held his form this spring and summer, and ran well from a moderate draw at Sandown last time out, finishing off quite strongly for third. Will need to be sharper on this speedier track but should again run his race, and has chances.
Won a couple on the spin in June and looked progressive but two efforts since then have been below par, and debatable whether a sharp 5f on quick ground is what she wants. Others make a bit more appeal.
Speedy sort that likes the track (a win and seven places from 18 starts here), below par at Ffos Las last time but had been in decent form before that and there's no doubt she'll give it a good go from the front once more.
Only had the five starts, so improvement is possible, but on what she's shown so far she'll need it. Hood on today may help her settle better (has been too keen) and if nothing else, she needs a glance in the market for any support.
