We’ve got six meetings to enjoy across the UK and Ireland on Wednesday 26 July – including a seven-race Flat card from Bath.
The going at the Somerset track is expected to be good to soft-good in places, with the opening race scheduled to go to post at 2.30 and the finale due off at 5.55.
We have picked out three tips to follow from the day’s action at Bath, including in the opener where a promising William Haggas runner could shake her maiden tag.
2.30 – Rose Bolt @ 8/13
There will only be five runners competing in the opening Maiden Fillies’ Stakes over 1m, but many of the contenders boast realistic claims, including Laura Mongan’s Certain Style, who has experience over this trip, and Boujee Gold from Tony Carroll’s yard.
However, preference is for Haggas’ runner Rose Bolt who has shown plenty of promise on her opening two starts, placing in runs at both Lingfield Park and Southwell.
Both those efforts were on the all-weather and it will be interesting to see how quickly she can transition to running over turf, but with jockey Sean Levey in the saddle, this improving three-year-old could take some stopping.
3.40 – Delagate This Lord @ 11/4
Betfred’s ‘Super Extra Place Race’ promotion will be available for the 3.40 at Bath, with four places being paid out instead of three for each-way bets, and one runner that should figure at the front of the field is Delagate This Lord.
Robyn Brisland’s nine-year-old is an experienced campaigner and should find this 5½f Handicap to his liking after scoring over this very C&D at the start of June.
First Company was a close second over this C&D just last week after recovering from an awkward start and the Mark Loughnane runner could provide Delagate This Lord with a stern test, but preference is for Brisland’s gelding.
5.25 – Angel Of Peace @ 3/1
The penultimate race on the card will also benefit from one of Betfred’s promotional offers, with the ‘Extra Place Race’ being available for this Handicap over 1m2f.
Angel Of Peace could be the standout contender in this one after she produced arguably a career-best showing when finishing runner-up over this distance in a competitive Handicap at Yarmouth earlier this month.
Trained by Ed Walker and with Tom Marquand in the saddle, Angel Of Peace could now be ready to shed her maiden tag, especially as she remains off a workable mark.
