Horse Racing tips: The best bets for EVERY race at Bath on Thursday

The Racing Post’s tipster expects these tips to go down swimmingly.



14:10 Awsaaf @ 5/4

Cappananty Con and Toolatetodelegate went close on Polytrack last month and both are of significant interest here, with the former able to run off a 10lb lower mark on turf and the latter with three course wins on her CV.

However, AWSAAF bounced back to form with a clear-cut success in first time blinkers a week ago and remains well below the mark off which he was a C&D winner last summer.

14:40 Hot Scoop

Good market support for Tom Dascombe’s unraced filly Cuban Breeze will put a different slant on things, but this looks a good opportunity for HOT SCOOP to follow up his convincing C&D win a week ago.

Julie Johnston and Follow Suit both dug deep to gain their all-weather wins and, of those, Mark Johnston’s filly may fare better here.

15:10 Devils Roc

Grey Galleon has run two good races since joining this yard and he’s high on the shortlist. The Lacemaker is expected to step up on last month’s efforts, while Princely and Thegreyvtrain also enter calculations, but the one to beat could be DEVILS ROC.

Twice a C&D winner last season, including second time out, she made a promising return to action when caught out wide over 7 furlong last month and could be primed to strike.

15:40 Union Rose @ 4/1

There wasn’t much between UNION ROSE and Real Estate over C&D last week and the latter would have finished closer granted a trouble-free passage through the race.

That said, Union Rose is 3lb better off this time and may be able to confirm the placings at a track he runs so well. Show Me The Bubbly was well held on her reappearance but could fare much better this time.

16:15 Motamayiz

There’s a suspicion MOTAMAYIZ isn’t the most straightforward and this opposition is more demanding than that which he dismissed over C&D last week, but he still appeals as having more to come and the blinkers clearly helped.

He’s taken to defy the penalty, with Dartington and San Rafael feared most.

16:50 A La Voile

Arabian Moon sets a fairly useful form standard, but wasn’t at his best when a beaten favourite on his latest outing and has a point to prove in first-time blinkers here.

Preference is for A LA VOILE, who has been absent since last summer’s promising debut at Newmarket but is open to considerable improvement this year. Marcus Tregoning’s newcomer Tawtheef has already been gelded, but is out of a Group 1 winner and is another to consider.

17:20 Rock Of Fame

Due to go up 6lbs in future handicaps after a short-head defeat last week, ROCK OF FAME (NAP) should have a good chance today and a slow start probably makes that Windsor performance even better.

Marie’s Gem looks clearly the most likely to follow her home, although some of their rivals are unexposed and others can have an each-way case argued for them.

17:50 Competition

Some very ropey opposition suggests that this is a good opportunity for COMPETITION. He’s in good form, which is the question mark over his possible chief rivals Filament Of Gold and General Brook who have not raced since last October.
