Bath Fortune for a fiver
£5 treble- pays £124
Perfect Grace 6.00 @ evens
Crystal Deauville 8.00 @ 10/3
Toolatetodelegate 8.30 @ 15/8
Selected Catterick- good to firm on this undulating and sharp track
3.00 Bella Brazil was caught out by the stiff rise in grade in a hot Beverley Class 2 sprint but back up in trip and in calmer waters looks the best option her with her rivals having a bit to prove at this trip and on quick ground.
½ pt win Bella Brazil @10/3
4.30 A tough small field handicap but at this trip and on quick ground, the strong finishing Show Me The Bubbly gets the nod.
¼ pt win Show Me The Bubbly @ 7/2
5.00 The faster ground and the rise in the weights is no help to recent C&D winner Bee Machine while Irish raider Lapett won well at Musselbugh last time, but the drop in trip from s wide draw is no help as neither is the penalty. Professional loser Donnellys Rainbow is unlikely to nab an overdue win from a wide draw while Muatadal only won a seller last time. Searanger has run some fair races of late and runs this track well on quick ground . He’s down to a good mark but the concern is the longer trip, but from a good draw, worth a try.
¼ pt ew Searanger @ 11/1
5.30 A similar race and the fav is lat time winner Aliento , winning well after a break on her first start for Michael Dodds, but would do well to double up from the worst of the draw.as well as a stiff penalty. Most of these are out of form, and one of the exceptions is the down in grade Mr Strutter, who runs this track really well and likes fast ground. He’s not badly drawn but is another with concerns at the trip, but has run respectably at this distance in the past, and looks a nice ew bet.
¼ pt ew MR Strutter @7/1
Selected Lingfield- good to firm on this undulating and sharp track
2.10 This is very weak and chancing a longshot in bumblekite, whose 2nd at Wetherby two starts back is well good enough to be a contender in this, but the stable’s runners are not running at all well, but at the odds has to be worth a flutter.
¼ pt ew Bumblekite @ 25/1
2.40 Cheerry Cols has taken off since trying this trip and comes here on a 4 timer. She has been winning with ease and the 6 pound hit may well not stop her. Fast ground no issue but she is a hold up type which could give the initiative to the probable pace setter Sawasdee, but happy to play at the odds.
¼ pt win Cherry Cola @ 11/4
3.0 PREMIUM RACE
5.10 the form figures are worrying as Voltaic comes here on the back of 3 seconds, but this should be his day as only serious rival , Attorney General has showed a preference for softer ground.
¾ pt win Voltaic @ evens
No Lingfield placepot
Selected Yarmouth- good to firm on this flat and galloping track
2.20 The question is whether a further 5 pound hit can stop Magical Ride landing a track hat-trick, but at 5/4, I’d rather pass with a couple of dark horses in the field
3.20 This has quite a deep look to it and could be a race worth following, but at the odds and with the longer trip likely to suit, nod goes to the improving Soloist .
¼ pt win Soloist @ 5/1
3.50 You would expect Fearlessly to take this , especially with the drop in trip in her favour. Eve Harrington returns from a long break and has only raced on the all weather.
½ pt win Fearlessly @ 6/4
4.20 PREMIUM RACE
4.50 Model quest is well worth her lofty rating of 91 as she comes here on the back of an excellent 5th of 27 at Royal Ascot, but she is 0 from 9 and is hard to win with. I hope it’s her day, but she’s blown easier tasks than this .
5.20 PREMIUM RACE
Selected Kempton- all weather- polytrack
5.45 This is highly winnable and the recent form of Military Decoration on this surface , mark and trip makes him a reasonable ew bet at nice odds.
¼ pt ew Military Decoration @ 11/1
6.15 This is a modest event and the clear form horse is the lightly raced Eligible who runs in famous colours for a top stable. His close 4th of 18 in the Newbury mud was clearly a good effort but today goes up in trip and tries polytrack, but in the absence of strong rival contenders, is well worth a play from a good draw and also appealing odds.
½ pt win Eligible @ 5/1
7.45 PREMIUM RACE
8.15 Another contest where it’s hard to get wildly excited about many and the two form horses , who are both effective over C&D in Get Back Get Back and Victory Chime are both high enough in the weights and could be coming here in better form. The capable veteran runs this C&D well and whilst his recent win record is not good, he’s never been so low In the handicap and most recent run on this surface good enough to outrun his odds.
¼ pt ew Noble Gift @ 16/1
Selected Bath- firm ground on this sharp but stiff track
6.00 This looks an absolute penalty kick for Perfect Grace ,a close 2nd over C&D last time on the same ground and mark .
¾ pt win Perfect Grace @ evens
6.30 This looks a match between the in form front running Thegrevytrain and the back to form and likeable veteran edged Out, who runs this C&D really well and she can keep close tabs on her main rival, who’s a bi high in the weights now returning from a break, before staying on the better.
½ pt win Edged Out @ 9/4
7.00 As Creek Island’s best form has come on soft ground and with Greeley struggling for form , this could go to Conspirator , whose good effort two starts ago came at this trip on quick turf.
¼ pt win Conspirator @ 7/4
8.00 Only 3 go and it could be another case of it going to the outsider of three as both the in form pair of Big Lachie and Rose Hip are on stiff marks and both hold up horses, giving the well weighted and C&d winner Crystal Deauville a good chance of setting just steady fractions before kicking for glory.
½ pt win Crystal Deauville @ 10/3
8.30 Not a deep contest and despite C&d specialist Toolatetodelegate being pushed up 5 pounds for a smart win last time, he should still hold the aces here.
½ pt win Toolatetodelegate @ 15/8
