Today’s horse racing preview comes from Bath with two selections from the meeting.
14.10 Bath – Dribuild Group Fillies Novice Median Auction Stakes (5.6f)
David Evans horses have found a new lease of life, as has the jockey riding them in Fran Berry, and the team pair up here with Time For Wine. She is the daughter of Equiano and has been on the go since June without landing success, however she has been consistent and with the season at the back-end now, you would like to think she should be landing a race of this type. Some might feel she is looking exposed with her strings of seconds, but leaving her around these ranks instead of taking her handicapping and have her bomb out, this is a good move to keep her in this sphere.
The danger to all though has to be Jamie Osborne’s Fab who also has a similar profile to the selections, she has been running well until finishing second last to Jim Rockford in Nursery company over 5f here at Bath two weeks ago. She returns but over slightly further, and with the second Deviate running well again at Kempton you would have thought she is the main danger.
TIME FOR WINE : 2pt Win @ SP (BOG)
14.40 Bath – ISG Fillies Handicap (0-70) (5.1f)
This is probably a good opportunity for Richard Price’s Bellevarde to record her second career success under her usual pilot Josephine Gordon. She was seen winning a 0-70 at Chepstow in poor conditions when just holding on to beat Kinglami who was rated 14lb her superior. She had to settle for second when behind Delegate This Lord in a 0-80 contest over course and distance two weeks ago and if she can pull that form out of the hat she should be winning this.
Main dangers could come from Spirit of Rosanna who will relish getting back on this surface after showing two good runs on soft and heavy ground, but she seems to leave her best form for Chepstow, however off her weight and a lenient mark of 59 she should be on the premises.
BELLEVARDE : 2pt Win @ SP (BOG)
Best of Luck, Bet Responsibly
