Thoughts on Bailiwick this evening

October 6, 2015

Bailiwick runs in the 7.10 this evening at Kempton Park (Tuesday, October 6th). Tim Queally takes the ride in he mile handicap. Bailiwick returns from a long break, following a couple of minor niggles. He won his second start, that was over six furlongs he now steps up to a mile which should suit as he needed every yard of the six to win when last seen. He is quite a laid back character and very inexperienced compared to his rivals so one hopes that he is clued up enough after absence to put up a good show.

The race looks a competitive handicap typical for the track at this sort of grade, luck of the draw and running all plays a part. Swordbearer has been running well of late but is yet to win a race, Alketios won last time but this is a higher grade. Amongst the outsiders Hectors Chance has looked capable of winning this type of contest but a few poor recent efforts need to be forgiven.
