16:10 Bath Wed 7 August 2019
Had just the five starts, so open to improvement, and slowly appears to be getting the hang of things after a staying on sixth (not beaten far) at Wolverhampton last time. Cheekpieces given a go now, which may help, and in a weak race, has chances.
No win in nine starts and in truth already looks regressive, made favourite at Yarmouth last time out but never got competitive and was well beaten. Drops back in trip but profile not that encouraging, and others preferred.
Had been threatening to win one for a while, so no surprise that he came good at Wolverhampton last time out, although had to be pushed right out for a neck win. 4lb rise demands more, but at least he comes here in form, which counts for plenty.
Poor this year but some good efforts as a 2yo and well handicapped on those if a change of scenery turns him around. New yard can win with them first time from others yards too, which makes him all the more interesting. Watch market for a clue.
Made light of an easy task at Lingfield (in a match race) back in March but latest effort, when last of 10 at Ffos Las, takes a bit of forgiving. May need more time for new yard.
Just had the four starts so unexposed, and did better upped in trip on handicap debut at Doncaster last time, not beaten far despite only beating one home. Drop back in trip not necessarily a positive, then, but improvement to come at some stage.
Done little in six starts to suggest he's up to winning this, and only of interest as trainer can land leftfield gambles with these sorts in poor affairs. Worth a market check then, but little else.
No win in eight starts and although you can argue it was a better effort when tried in cheekpieces over this C&D last time, she was still well beaten at the death. Needs more if she's to get involved.
Going nowhere quickly at present and has been beaten big distances on both starts this year. Hard to construct any sort of case for her at present.
Well beaten on all five starts to date and has shown only the merest glimmer of ability. Blinkers now tried but they really do need to make a huge difference if she's to have any chance.
Solidly beaten in all three starts and has shown signs of temperament to date as well, so no surprise to see the addition of the hood for her handicap debut today. Simply hasn't shown enough to be considered.
Done very little in seven starts to think he's up to taking a hand in this, and no guarantees this big step up in trip is going to help either. Not hard to look elsewhere for the winner.
