Will Gold Arch shine at Chepstow?

Heading up the market at 6/4 is GOLD ARCH* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 23:12 GMT on Monday, June 29th 2020).

The form is certainly there from him to back that up. He will be lining up a hattrick in this one.

Nine days ago Gold Arch scored in a field of 10 under handicap conditions at Wolverhampton on a 14f trip.

He will be taking on a 5lb penalty for that effort, but still looks to be one of the front runners for this effort.

He has claimed four wins from 1m 4f to 1m 6f, so it will be interesting to see what he will deliver now he has been pushed on even further in trip. Warrants respect.



Will With Pleasure please supporters?

There was a very good reappearance form WITH PLEASURE recently. Notably he will for the first time have blinkers on for a flat race. Anyway, it was a second place finish in his last effort

That was a 2m trip at Wolverhampton on the all-weather so With Pleasure has the trip in him. That was his first run since February and looks good and sharp at the moment.

He is one to be watched from 13/2* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 23:12 GMT on Monday, June 29th 2020).

Can Bailarico make another strong Chepstow show?

BAILARICO is a course and distance winner. That happened a while ago however, back in May 2018. His one another appearance at the track happened earlier this month when he took 4th of nine.

That was his second run of the month and really produced a much-improved effort there as well.

There’s reason enough to suggest that Bailarico can show well back at a course that he clearly likes and is an 8/1 shot* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 23:12 GMT on Monday, June 29th 2020).

Can Londonia build on his last run?

LONDONIA will have the weights on his side for this one. Back in February he claimed a win at Southwell and on his left effort went well too.

That was in a 16.6f trip at Wolverhampton almost three weeks ago. In it Londonia took a credible fourth place finish and could have enough to show for the places.

Can Repetitio get his game plan right?

The lightly raced REPETITIO got his race plan a bit wrong on his last effort. He went for it too early and paid the price in a 12f handicap at Kempton three weeks ago. He has won at 17f over hurdles before and just been lightly treated on the flat.

Other Contenders

There’s actually a really interesting field here. AKKAPENKO is a proven performer, although he is coming back to the flat for the first time since 2017. He easily has the trip in him and won a couple of hurdle efforts last autumn.

BE FAIR has won two of his four trips since his reappearance. So the form is there from him. He wasn’t quite on his game on his most recent effort, taking 6th at Sandown a couple of weeks ago. He is worth keeping an eye on but faces a big jump in trip.

MASTER GREY does have a bit of course and distance history behind him, winning under those terms. However, his last effort was back at course and distance two weeks ago and was second from last on good-going. Comes in at a more favourable handicap after tumbling in the weights.

Predictions & Tips

It’s hard not to favor GOLD ARCH for this contest. He is in great form and has paid a penalty in the weight for that. Gold Arch was in really fine form on that recent run at Wolverhampton.

A good effort from WITH PLEASURE does also put him in the frame after handling handicap conditions well at Wolverhampton and is nicely balanced in the weights for this contest.

The field is wide open beyond that. But we would go to the course and distance winner BAILARICO to come good.

Has scored 5 times form 19 efforts on the flat and a recent course and distance effort should see him sharp. He likes a Chepstow run, apparantly.
