Horse racing tips today: Horses you must back at Bath, Chester, Hexham, Sandown and York | Racing | Sport
The four-year-old was runner-up behind Dee Ex Bee in a Group Three at Sandown last month with one of today’s opponents, Austrian School, only a head away in third.
That was on good-to-firm ground, but today’s soft conditions shouldn’t be a problem for the Stoute runner, who has won on both soft and heavy in his 10-race career.
Austrian School has also won when the ground has been testing and there won’t be too much between them again although Mekong should have the edge once more.
At Chester, MRS BOUQUET (nb, 2.10) should take the median auction stakes which opens the seven-race card.
Mark Johnston’s filly beat male opponents on her debut at Newcastle and now switches from the all-weather to turf.
The Newcastle run was over five furlongs and she steps up in trip here, but that should be beneficial for the daughter of Toronado, who was keeping on strongly at the north-east track.
Doncaster winner Apollinaire – only beaten a head on his only other appearance – could be a danger along with Know No Limits, who has been far from disgraced in two runs over the
minimum trip and is bred to appreciate this stiffer test.
POWER OF DARKNESS (treble, 3.30) can light up the one-mile handicap at Bath in the hands of Hayley Turner.
The latter gained two wins at Salisbury on the gelding last season, but the combination was out of luck when Power Of Darkness was beaten a head on his reappearance at Newmarket.
On his most recent outing, a return visit to Newmarket, Marcus Tregoning’s contender pulled too hard for his own good and was beaten into fourth and that run can be ignored.
