Horse Racing: Trainer Roger Teal names 3 to watch on Wednesday at Bath & Wolverhampton

Roger Teal gives us the inside track on his Wednesday runners at Bath & Wolverhampton.



Roger Teal has named his three runners to keep an eye on ahead of upcoming meetings at Wolverhampton and Bath.

The Lambourn-based trainer, who earlier today had to rule out July Cup winner and ante-post favourite Oxted from Saturday’s Betfair Sprint Cup Stakes at Haydock, has a few interesting runners midweek.

Speaking on the latest edition of Paddy Power’s From The Horse’s Mouth podcast, Teal picked his three to watch and also gave an update on Bear Force One prior to the Cambridgeshire Handicap at Newmarket later this month.

Bath 15.30 – Kyllachys Tale 

Kyllachys Tale was second at Chepstow 18 days ago and looks to have her chance in the Class 5 handicap over a mile.

Kyllachys Tale, if it rains,” Teal said.

“If we had more rain you’d fancy her even more. She has to have soft in the going description. She was a tad unlucky the last day when she got collared in the final strides at Chepstow. She could run well again.

Bath 16:35 – Rosie Royale

The third of Teal’s runners on Wednesday is course and distance winner Rosie Royal who runs in the Class 6 1m 5f handicap.

Rosie Royale is a solid old horse. She’s eight years old now but there’s still a race in her, so we could have a good day Wednesday.”

Wolverhampton 17:00 – Swiss Pride

Swiss Pride is the first of the Teal runners that he mentioned on the bi-weekly From The Horses Mouth podcast and the four-year-old is declared for the 7f handicap at 17:00 at Wolverhampton on Wednesday.

Swiss Pride has been knocking at the door,” revealed Teal. “He got beaten by two short heads last time out at Chelmsford and he’s due a win.”


Meanwhile, Teal has high hopes for his *Bear Force One in the 1m 1f Cambridgeshire at Newmarket later this month and believes the four-year-old is getting better with every outing.

“I like him, he’s a lovely big horse – he’s a huge horse!” said Teal. “If he can get in the main event, I think he’s progressed with each run. He ran well the last day and it’s the sort of race which would suit him down to the ground, if he gets in.”
