Betting Tip: Thames Knight @ 7/1 with bet365

By coincidence I fancy another dual Bath winner in the 1m2f handicap run later on the card. Marcus Tregonning’s THAMES KNIGHT was breaking his duck when scoring at that venue in August and he duly followed up just four days when returned there under a penalty.

Having been reassessed and raised to a new mark of 76, he could only finish third at Goodwood when attempting the hat-trick, but he was possibly inconvenienced by having to race up the centre of the track, whereas the principals benefitted from racing on a faster strip of ground near the stands’ rail.

He remains progressive and with Louis Steward taking a handy 3lb off his back he is fancied to get back to winning ways at the possible expense of Mark Johnston’s top weight Freight Train. The latter arrives here on the back of a Redcar success, but he was enterprisingly ridden that day and the form needs treating with some caution.
