Perfect the pick at Bath

Posted on by Dave Metcalf

Perfect Honour shaped really nicely last time out and makes plenty of each-way appeal at 10/1 in the 4.45 at Bath.

The mare has been very lightly raced since winning a 5f handicap at Wolverhampton off a mark of 52 back in 2009 when trained by Derek Shaw, but was a real eye-catcher last time out when 7th of 12 to Avolini over 6f at the Midlands’ track.

After being slowly away, Des Donovan’s six-year-old made good late headway from the rear and stayed on strongly under tender handling to be beaten just over 3 lengths.

It was a run which suggested she retained enough ability to win races off her current mark of 47, and the step up in trip to a mile today could now be what she needs judged on the way she was finishing off that race.

Another plus is that she also has form on soft going, and with the useful Kieren Fox taking another 3lb off her back she is certainly weighted to go very close.

I had her priced up at around the 8/1 mark, so at the 10s on offer she looks good  value and worth an each-way play.

Daily Sport recommended: 2pts each-way Perfect Honour (10/1 Boylesports, BetVictor, Paddy Power – BOG)
