Steve Mullen guides you through Monday’s racing from Bath, Beverley, Kempton, Warwick and Windsor
COMPTON PRINCE has been going well on the all-weather but he likes it around here too as he showed when winning on his only previous visit. He was an excellent second at Kempton last time and he’s proven at this level.
EVERGATE was a little bit outpaced over 5f at Wolverhampton last time on his debut for Robert Cowell. It was still an excellent effort to come back from a break and finish second there. He is better over this extra furlong and should be fitter too.

This looks wide open and could give DODGY BOB a chance to get his career back on track. He has left Kevin Ryan’s team where his form had dipped so comes here on a low mark (10lb lower than last win) for what he’s achieved at his best. The first-time eyeshield could help too.
ROCK OF ESTONIA looks the one to beat after a convincing debut win at Windsor last time out. That was over this 5f trip and he handled that difficult track well so won’t mind Bath either. He has a penalty but doesn’t look to have a great deal to beat here.
MORNINGTON has very few miles on the clock and looked useful for this grade when winning a Brighton handicap last time out. That was over slightly shorter but he stayed on well and should see out this distance no problem. He should be capable of rating higher than this in time.
THE QUARTERJACK is getting on a bit now but his record of two wins and a place from three runs over this course and distance makes him worth a close look. He’s dropping in class after a modest effort on the all-weather last time, which could make all the difference.
MUTINEER was given three runs at maiden level last year over shorter trips and looks well enough handicapped for his three-year-old campaign. He improved with each start and ended with a solid fourth at Kempton in December. It would be no surprise to see him improve on that.
