7th September

A few races today but mostly poor races.

2:10 Bath
This doesn't look much of a race - a restricted auction event. Gooseberry Bush is the most likely form horse as she is going the right way and quite an attractive filly. Makin's charge ran well last time at the course when beaten easily by Bush Tucker who is a capable two-year-old. Little Brazillian showed a glimmer of hope last time but her previous efforts were pretty dire. I would rather watch her today. Both Devassa and Pherousa have form lines with Makin's juvenile and Cox's may have improved a fraction for that debut and both are a couple of pounds better off today. I don't think any of these form horses are going to win this with ease but Gooseberry Bush, even with a high draw, looks a consistent juvenile at this level and must go close. An each way bet would be most favourable although this looks a competitive race and it may be a messy affair.

A watching day.
