Bath Tip: Evanescent
Won off this mark last October and the recent rain has increased his chances.
Bath is forecast to receive rain this evening and if that gets into the ground then we could have conditions that are even more testing than the soft going currently recorded. That is good news for Evanescent who is 3/12 when racing on going rated soft.
Last time out he finished a credible third, only beaten 2.25 lengths in a class 4 handicap. His finishing speed that day was 97.2% of his overall speed, slower than par for the track and the better horses probably meant he was forced to go a stride to quick.
In the 3.40 Bath he drops into class 5 company, where is 4/15 during his career. Having won off the same mark last October, he should go well again.
