Bath Racing Tips: Mbappe can score

There is evening racing at Bath on Wednesday

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Bath on Wednesday.

  • A Bath Nap and Next Best from Timeform

Bath Nap - 18:40 - Back Mbappe

Mbappe showed just modest form for Ed Walker last year, but he was much improved when opening his account on his first start for this yard over seven furlongs at Kempton last month.

He was given a patient ride that day, left with plenty to do entering the straight, but he weaved his way through rivals and stayed on strongly to lead close home. That performance can be marked up further when taking sectionals into account and a subsequent 3 lb rise probably underestimates him.

Bath Next Best - 19:40 - Bobby Kennedy

Bobby Kennedy's sole win came three years ago, but he recorded it over this course and distance, and he ran one of his best races for a while on his return from six months off back at this venue last month.

He had no chance with the winner on that occasion, but he bumped into one who was unexposed at the trip and has since won again, so the form has a solid look to it, and he has been found another good opportunity to belatedly get his head back in front racing from the same mark.
