Here are today's Ladbrokes Bath tips
Bajan Bullet has a little bit more experience than the rest of the field, but Richard Hannon's filly, BLAZE ON BY and Mick Channon's, Country Waltz, may be reigniting a fight started by their sires.
Blaze On By is the offspring of Firebreak who was a very decent two year old over six furlongs who went on to be a quality miler. Country Waltz's father is Pastoral Pursuits who interestingly beat Firebreak over seven furlongs way back in 2004 at Doncaster. We fancy Blaze On By to set the record straight and avenge her sire's defeat. Richard Hannon has a 14% strike rate at Bath and his filly is ridden by Pat Dobbs who has a 33% record on two year old's this year. Bajan Bullet should come on for recent runs and, just for the experience, may be the favourite for this race. Never Can Stop ran a respectable second behind Inagh River at Nottingham on her first outing and we expect another decent performance here. In a sure to be closely contested race, we tentatively side with Blaze On By.
The second race at Bath could be a keen handicap with 14 pounds between the top and bottom weight, but the main contenders are likely to be KINGSDINE, Cool Kitten and Motty's Gift.
We feel that the progressive Kingsdine who is yet to get on the scoresheet may have found the right race to get past the post first. The bay colt finished a decent second on good to firm ground at Bath over course and distance, only a head behind It's A Deal. With only a three pound rise for that performance we have marked Kingsdine as the one to win on our card. In the same race, Sultan's Choice was back in sixth finishing seven lengths behind the winner. However, the high draw back then may have disadvantaged Sultan's Choice who is more interesting from stall two in this race and will be looking to make an improvement. Cool Kitten and Motty's Gift were seen most recently in late April as they battled it out at Folkestone. Cool Kitten won the race and Motty's Gift finished fourth. They are expected to challenge but we side with Kingsdine.
The combination of Stan Moore and Ryan Powell are looking to score again with FOUR KICKS, whilst the improving gelding Sunny Future and the usually consistent Beaubrav will be looking to pick up the honours in this contest.
Four Kicks is looking for a third win in a row having performed well at Brighton and Nottingham. We feel that off a favourable mark in this handicap he can kick on to another victory. Sunny Future off top weight may struggle to better his decent record of third and fourth in his last two runs at Bath. Beaubrav has won at the distance before back in April this year on the all-weather track at Lingfield. Hatch A Plan is a former course and distance winner, but the heavily raced nine year old will probably find the competition a bit too much to cope with. Catchmeifyoucan is likely to be caught out in this race and Duke of Normandy would be performing well against the form if he were to conquer all here. Lucy's Perfect and Hector Spectre have won over this kind of distance before but have not shown anything like that sort of performance recently. Four Kicks ticks our box in this race.
DHANIA may favour the drop back in trip to 1m 3f and is fancied to win the race; Bedarra Boy along with Touch of Style may be hoping a switch to the course at Bath may lead to their first wins.
Bedarra Boy has tried a variety of distances including over hurdles and we remain unconvinced that he can end his run of eleven starts without a win. Touch of Style appears to run better over slightly longer distances than this although with Ross Atkinson having guided the gelding to a commendable third at Warwick recently connections will be hoping he can pull off something similar. Liam Keniry has a respectable record as a jockey around the Bath track and Dhania has been running longer distances of late, possibly with the intention of building stamina for the stiff uphill finish at Bath. We cautiously choose Dhania to take advantage of the drop back in trip and make all the running.
Spinning Ridge won well last time out on the all-weather at Wolverhampton 6 days ago, whilst Full Victory and Perfect Class are previous course and distance winners, however we are going to go with an altogether riskier prospect in CAPEABILITY.
Both Mick Channon and Chris Catlin have scored a decent percentage of winners at Bath and Capeability is by Cape Cross. The progeny of Cape Cross generally progress well and he is also sire of the excellent Sea the Stars. Despite a poor record as yet, it speaks volumes that Mick Channon is persisting with Capeability. Spinning Ridge suffers from an additional six pound penalty for turning out again so quickly after a one and a quarter length win against Running Flame. David Probert once again takes the ride. Full Victory could challenge again after two second place finishes this month at Bath, but we are happy to take a punt with Capeability.
SPIRTITONTHEMOUNT runs again after a commendable victory just a few days ago on the same course with Brandy Butter and Brave Bugsy also reappearing from that same contest to challenge again.
The win for the Hiatt stable on 17th May was the first win for Spiritonthemount in 26 starts. The company here is no more intense and it is our choice to side with the course and distance winner. Party Palace finished third in her last outing and should not be discounted as this place was behind the fine performing Lady Hestia. Star of Pompey, Brad's Luck and Ladies Dancing hold little appeal. Brave Bugsy has also won over the course and distance but a poor run when finishing fifth here behind Spiritonthemount and Brandy Butter suggests it has a lot to find if to repeat its winning efforts over the past two years at Bath. Brandy Butter put in a gutsy performance when losing by half a length to Spiritonthemount but we are tempted to stick with Spiritonthemount for this race.
Beat The Bell is top weight in this contest having gained seven pounds for a one and a quarter length victory over Cornus, but we feel ORANGE PIP and Night Affair could provide a stiff challenge.
Beat The Bell won well at Folkestone over faster ground and is difficult to overlook having gained two wins out of three races. Orange Pip gains our vote after an impressive win on her seasonal reappearance at Lingfield on the all-weather track. The chestnut mare who was previously trained by Richard Hannon won in her first outing for Peter Makin. Both Misaro and Kyllachy Storm have won over course and distance before, with Kyllachy Storm having won twice here in May 2009. However, Kyllachy Storm has generally not performed as well since, with the exception of a victory at Kempton in April. Considering the competition it will really depend upon who gets the best start and Palisades Park has a potentially advantageous draw. Orange Pip was very quickly away the last time we saw her from a wide draw and therefore Orange Pip is our pick for the final race of the meeting at Bath.
