Today's Horse Racing Tips: This fancy can strike at Bath

Today's racing tips for Bath and Newton Abbot.
Today's racing tips for Bath and Newton Abbot.

A Step Too Far (advised at 7/1) won yesterday’s Premier Handicap at the Curragh in fine style to complete a magnificent six-timer. Breaking smartly from an advantageous high draw, she made all to score by half-a-length. Connections will surely now go in search of some Black Type for this daughter of Footstepsinthesand.

I have picked out two bets for today’s racing at Bath and Newton Abbot.

Bath Tip

14:50 – 5½f Sign Express Handicap (Class 4)

Course specialist DELAGATE THIS LORD (1 point win bet at 14/1) has won five of his 11 previous races at Bath and appears to relish the lightning fast conditions that he is set to encounter today. There was nothing wrong with his fifth-place finish here last time out as it came in a competitive Class 3 contest that was won in a track record time. This represents a drop in class for Michael Attwater’s sprinter, who has a good draw in stall 1. Princess Choice, ahead of the selection last time, and Michaels Choice are next best.

Newton Abbot Tip

15:40 – 2m5½f Watch Sky Sports In HD Handicap Hurdle (Class 4)

The ex-Joseph O’Brien-trained CAN YOU BELIEVE IT (NAP - 1 point win bet at 10/1) was a six-length winner over this course and distance last year and can return to the winners’ enclosure today. This seven-year-old gelding was second at Southwell on his seasonal reappearance, either side of subsequent winners, and can be forgiven his defeat last time out as he did not appear to stay the extended three-mile trip. The drop back to 2m5½f should be ideal and a sound surface appears to be key to his chances. The returning Francky Du Berlais rates as the biggest danger.
