Creek Harbour

Creek Harbour gained some momentum after switching to this stable last year, notching a win over C&D (good to soft) in August and following up soon after at Chepstow. The gelding outran odds of 40/1 when beaten less than a length at Chelmsford in February's return to action and, with just six previous turf starts, he may still have more to offer back on the grass with David Probert on board for the first time since that decisive score here last summer.


A typical early season sprint for this track with a host of chances and fitness to be proved for many. Able Kane, King Of Stars and Union Rose merit plenty of consideration but Haveoneyerself gets the nod. The Requinto gelding defied an absence when scoring at Windsor last June on quick ground on his comeback over 5f and he maintained his form afterwards despite not getting his head in front again. Laura Pearson's 5lb claim won't do him any harm at all and he should give a good account against the likely market principles.


Villanelle showed improved form when tackling turf handicaps at Leicester and Windsor (both good to firm over this sort of trip) last summer and, following an autumn wind operation, has been consistently knocking on the door on the all-weather circuit through the winter months and into spring. Both of last month's runs saw the Muhaarar filly finishing second and she's well worth chancing back on the grass. Tyler Saunders claims 5lb here, as he did in the runner-up effort at Leicester last June, and the filly is rated 3lb lower now.

Like Sugar

Ex-Richard Fahey inmate Like Sugar has improved for the switch to handicaps on the all-weather for new trainer Kevin Philippart De Foy. She made it third time lucky in that sphere at Kempton in February, surging home strongly after briefly looking in trouble. She's got scope for further improvement back on turf in the coming months and can underline that here from a light weight for her young Newmarket-based trainer as he embarks on a first UK turf season as a licensed handler. His relatively small string have achieved excellent all-weather results, with a 27 strike-rate thus far (10-37).

About Bath Racecourse

The venue for 22 flat meetings throughout the year, Bath Racecourse boasts a stunning setting in the Avon countryside. Highlights throughout the year include the Listed Lansdowne Fillies Stakes and Beckford Fillies Stakes, the latter a relatively new contest introduced in 2016 which was won last year by Mark Johnston’s consistent stayer Sapa Inca.

Geographically, Bath is the highest racecourse in the country. Watering is often an issue, so the ground there is mostly on the “Firm” side, ideal for fast ground performers.
