ARCHAEOLOGY (2.00 Hamilton, 1pt win 4/1)

ARCHAEOLOGY wasn’t seen to best effect last time at Thirsk when held up off a slow gallop but stuck to the task once in the clear and this slightly longer trip today should suit so is selected to build on his promising reappearance effort at Redcar.

His penultimate start at Redcar suggested he may not be done improving when chasing home recent winner Scottish Summit. He was short of room and had to switch over a furlong out before running on strongly at the finish. You can rate a race around the third, King Ragnar who is a model of consistency and that horse went within a head of winning next time out at Yarmouth and the sixth gave the form a boost when winning next time at Pontefract.

Plenty of his form from last term has worked out well enough to suggest he can be competitive off today’s mark of 82 and including when winning at Doncaster off a 2lb lower mark. The drying ground will be in his favour more than most in this field and you can forgive his latest effort at Thirsk which came just six days after his reappearance at Redcar.

Today’s race, despite the small field size, should be run at a true pace with confirmed front runner Striding Edge likely to take the field along and the likes of favourite Le Chiffre and Granite City Doc that both like to race in prominent positions

PRINCESS POWER (2.50 Bath, 1pt win 7/1)

PRINCESS POWER has been knocking on the door of late in better company than she faces today and her latest course and distance second behind Motagally is by far the best piece of recent form on offer.

She drops back into a Class 4 event and is again under a 7lb claimer and a reproduction of that latest effort would be enough to come out on top here. She has been frustrating as hell but compensation awaits her followers.

MAGICAL DRAGON (5.20 Bath, 0.5pts each-way 20/1)

MAGICAL DRAGON has been on the radar since his debut run here at Bath over 1m worked out so well and then was even more interesting on his next start when beaten five lengths over the same course and distance under very careful handling.

He was again given a considerate ride on both of his efforts at Kempton on the all-weather including on handicap debut off a mark of 75. The handicapper has dropped him 5lb for that run but he was hardly asked a question when drawn in stall 13 and held up at the rear of the field.

He clearly goes well here and now steps up to 1m2f for the first time and is drawn kindly in stall 5. This is a slight ease in grade into a 0-70 and is a wide open event so a chance is taken.

TATTENHAMS (5.50 Bath, 1pt win 9/2)

TATTENHAMS was a winner for this column last week at Hamilton and although this is a slightly longer trip he is, inclusive of the jockey claim, 2lb lower under a 5lb penalty.

Given he had plenty in hand and just idled once hitting the front there, it's worth keeping the faith that he can follow up here. The rattling fast ground shouldn’t pose an issue (solid form on it) and this is a weak apprentice handicap.
