Barroche should take some beating at Bath

Alan Thompson returns to the Bets of the Day column and is looking to get his week started with winners from Bath and Worcester...


"I would expect to see more improvement out of the Clive Cox filly today and with Adam Kirby on top and she should be good enough to deal with these over the minimum trip."

15:30 Bath - Barroche @ 11/4 Sportsbook

Clive Cox's two-year-old Barroche is back out today after running a very decent second to Jule In The Crown (quoted at 16/1 for the Queen Mary at Royal Ascot). Barroche showed plenty of promise on her racecourse debut with Tiggaliscious and Speed Freak back in third and fourth that day. The seventh horse home was Miss Rosina, who has since come out and won this week at Wetherby, I have a feeling this could be a race that will be worth following.

I would expect to see more improvement out of the Clive Cox filly today with Adam Kirby on top and she should be good enough to deal with these over the minimum trip. The main concern is the Richard Hannon filly Tigaliscious, who has had three starts and just seems to keep finding one too good. Hopefully, that run will continue today and Barroche will open her account at just the second time of asking.


17:50 Worcester - Get It On @ 15/8 Sportsbook

Get It On is an interesting debutant for Mrs A Rucker in the opening race at Worcester. Previously trained by Evan Williams, the 11-year-old has been in good from, never out of the first two places in his last five starts. Having won four chases and four hurdle races in his career as well as two point-to-points, he could be difficult to beat in this contest.

He is plenty short enough at 15/8 but I do think he is worth a small investment at that price, he has an official rating of 125 which is 8lbs better than the top weighted West End and he is 11lb clear of his other rivals on ratings.


Recommended Bets:

Back Barroche @ 11/4 in the 15:30 Bath
Back Get It On @ 15/8 in the 17:50 Worcester
