Robert Winston - rides Hugs And Pats

Robert Winston – rides Hugs And Pats

ROYAL ASCOT is into its fourth day of top level racing but there is racing elsewhere including at Bath where Dean introduces Hugs And Pats in the 7.50, a 5f maiden auction stakes.

Only five go to post including the odds-on favourite Autumn Lodge, who has run five times, been placed three times and who was beaten 10 1/2 lengths in this week’s Windsor Castle at the royal meeting.

This is not a great maiden and could to one of the three newcomers which includes Hugs And Pats, a gelded son of Big Bad Bob.  He is bred to get much further but does hold a couple of sales race entries.

Nevertheless, he has drifted hugely in the market all day from 2/1 to 3/1, so confidence cannot be high.

It’s probably not a race to get involved with but Hugs And Pats is probably overpriced and might be worth a speculative bet.  Robert Winston rides.
