Trainer who is 2/3 at Bath in 2021 sends sole runner on Wednesday

Wednesday’s racing comes from six venues, so there’s plenty to look forward too. Salisbury, Worcester, Carlisle, Naas, Kempton and Bath all host action, and we’ll have horse racing tips for all the meetings. We’ll have also have an accumulator tip for the afternoon, as we attempt to replicate yesterday’s 36-1 winner!

While looking through the statistics, an interesting one appeared at Bath. Ed Walker has sent three horses to the venue in 2021, with a pair of them returning home winners. That 67% strike-rate has yielded a level stakes profit of £5.12 and his runner on Wednesday needs close attention.

Putting aside his good record at Bath, Walker’s string are in great form overall. He’s sent out 22 horses in the past two weeks, with five winners yielding a level stakes profit of £5.38. Peerless looks to extend the good times and he has an excellent chance of doing so.

He’s won two of his last three starts, making a winning return at Nottingham back in April. That form has worked out well since, with a subsequent defeat at Goodwood off seven-pound higher rating excusable.

He quickly made amends, however, scoring at Lingfield last time in comfortable fashion. That wasn’t the strongest of races, but he only needed a hands and heels ride to burst clear in the closing stages. Winning going away, he clearly has more to offer and a six-pound rise for that success is unlikely to stop him going close once again.

He once again has his ideal conditions and he’s run well at Bath in the past, which is a positive given the track’s quirky nature. Saffie Osbourne retains the ride and her five-pound claim could make all the difference in the closing stages, as he bids for win number four in his career thus far.
