4:35 Bath – Dabbous
There is one horse here of particular note, and another to put in the tracker, so we’re hoping that the right one will win, as the other option is too much to bear. DABBOUS is the pick, while the one to keep an eye on is Epona Pas from the Jikm Goldie yard. I must admit that I’d missed the fact that Dabbous was declared to run at Chelmsford on Thursday when I went through his chance here, but he really caught my eye on his last qualifying run in a good novice at Newcastle, fading late after making a mid-race move to get into contention for the places. On that showing, I thought the handicapper had been generous in giving him a mark of 59, and the stats for George Boughey’s handicap debutants immediately made me think he would be an immediate improver.
Unfortunately, that improvement duly came when he overcame trouble to win well at Chelmsford yesterday, and he’s bred to be at least as good on turf, being a Kodiac half-brother to 1m1f soft-ground winner Tommy R. He clearly learnt plenty in his qualifying runs, all of which came at up to 7f, and a longer trip is clearly required. He drops to a mile, but the soft ground at Bath will put an emphasis on stamina, and he looked well ahead of his mark in victory.
Epona Pas is drawn in stall one, which isn’t ideal, but he showed much more than previously when third on his final qualifying run as a juvenile at Ayr, despite being unsuited by the drop to sprinting, and he’s unexposed at a mile heading into handicaps. If he had been better drawn, he’d be of serious interest, but is still one to keep in the notebooks.
