Sufi ran really well when third last time out and has run well in both his starts at Bath, so at 8/1 with Grosvenor Sport looks worth siding with in the 4.30 there today.
This five-year-old finished third in a maiden at the venue off an official rating of 78 and won over 1m 5f at the track three starts back when in the care of Ken Cunningham Brown and staying on strongly to lead in the final strides and beat hermocrates by a head off 71.
He the ran below par at Salisbury but quickly bounced back when a fine 1 1/2 length third to Camric over the 1m 6f trip of this at the same venue off 72.
The winner is a progressive sort who looked well head off his mark, whilst the runner-uo Cogital has come and and won next time up.
That gives the form a dcenet look and suggests a 1lb rise in the weights for Sufi, who now make his first start since joining Milton Harris, is more than fair.
Sufi also has the services of the in-form Pat Dobbs in the saddle and has been placed in three of his four starts over the trip, so everything looks in place for a big run at a vneue which clearly suits.
THE BET recommended bet: 2pts each-way Sufi (8/1 Grosvenor Sport– use BOG firms paying 4 places)
