  • Liftoff – 1st, Cloudbreaker – 5th
  • Boom the Groom – 1st
  • Zulu Girl – nowhere, Granary Queen – 1st (8/1)

Well, I’ll have that.

So in the 6:00 at Bath, you have an evens favourite against a recent C&D winner in Ruby Cottage. The former (Regal Envoy) is up 4lb for having won by a neck last time out over C&D, but the latter is better value at 3/1 and recently went to Newbury on softer ground than he may have wanted. Therefore, the easing of 1lb and the return to good to firm conditions on a more favoured track may just help… 

Tangled did really nicely for us on the place money last week, and off the same mark in the 2:25 at Carlisle, he’s got every chance of going one better. Bigger field, perhaps, but it’s a race he’s won before. He’s 3/1, but Jackhammer is 2nd rated and edges him on the form numbers, albeit form numbers earned in a different sphere. He also won this race back in 2019, so he comes with form and suitability – and a 50% win rate on this track. So between the two of them, they may have it wrapped up. Jackhammer is 9/1 though… hmm…

Gometra Ginty has done well for us before, and in the 4:00 at Carlisle he could potentially add to his good record here. He takes top jockey and most suited, and while others do have claims, it’s going to be all about the price you can get and 7/2 feels about right in this field. He’s coming into a little bit of form, under the radar, and also have a look at Qipao who goes down in grade today, and isn’t that badly rated.

And in the 5:50 at Kempers, Alcazan takes an extra 4lb, but he made all to win last time at Kempton and he has an excellent record on the AW anyway. 2nd-rated with top jockey and top trainer in the bag, he comes just behind Luckyboylovelywife who won at Beverley last week, takes on a penalty, but still has every chance.

Right – the rest is up to you.
