15:00 Bath

Six runners got to post for an extended five furlong handicap.

Jack The Truth was a comfortable winner here last time. He turns out again six days later under a four pound penalty, and would have a solid chance. The ground however did have a little ease in it last time, and it’s going to be lightning fast this time.

Watchya seems to be a little hit and miss, but this represents a drop in class, and he’s a solid contender.

Ruby Cottage is the choice. She is a really consistent filly and rarely runs a bad race. She has crept up the weights, but is still feasibly handicapped. She will relish these conditions and is something of a course specialist.


19:20 Chelmsford

A good quality handicap, run over a mile and a quarter.

Vulcan won on his third attempt for his new yard last time at Newcastle. It could be they’ve found the key to him, and his form was boosted when the horse he beat into second that day, ran a fine race in the Magnet Cup at the weekend.

Sea The Shells finished seven lengths behind Vulcan last time but can be expected to improve on that. If he strips fitter for his comeback, he can expect to get a good bit closer this time.

The selection is Boss Power. Firstly Sir M Stoute has two runners in the race, his other being Satono Japan. Both have excellent chances, but Moore has evidently chosen our selection, which speaks volumes. He has run well in complete handicaps this season, and he looks like he’s coming to the boil.
