Bath Tips and Racecourse Guide
Race Sharp provides free betting tips for all race meetings at Bath throughout the flat turf season.
Bath racecourse, situated at the top of Lansdown Hill just outside of the city, hosts over 20 meetings a year during the flat season.
Famous for the fact it has no watering system, the ground at Bath is often very quick and as a result, it has always attracted course specialists that return on regular occasions throughout the campaign.
A picturesque course, it attracts good-sized fields and provides competitive racing. The feature events of the year are the Listed Lansdown Fillies’ Stakes in April, and the Listed Beckford Stakes in October.
Rod Millman has his team in excellent nick at present and Handytalk can give him another winner at Bath today (2.20pm).
The nine year old finished a good second at Chepstow last time, and the switch to this course is no issue, having won twice here in the past. The latest of those course successes came a couple of years ago, and it’s interesting to see Oliver Searle, who was on board that day, taking his first ride in the UK since September 2020.
A bit of cut in the ground will suit, he is off a fair mark at present, and he looks to have plenty in his favour today.
RECOMMENDED BET: 2.20pm Bath – Handytalk ew @ 7-1
