Tonight's action: three runners to note from Perth, Punchestown and Bath

Bath: racing this evening
1 of 1

There is a triple-header of evening racing to choose from today, with meetings at Bath, Perth and Punchestown. Here are three runners it could be worth noting

5.45 Punchestown
Woodland Opera

Although disappointing at last month's Punchestown festival, Woodland Opera has a good record at the course overall, with three wins from seven previous starts.

Those victories include a Grade 2 novice chase last November, and if the eight-year-old returns to his past level of form then he should be on the premises.

7.25 Bath
Bayston Hill

It is firm ground at Bath this evening, which will not suit all the runners, but Bayston Hill is unlikely to be inconvenienced by the fast conditions.

A course-and-distance winner just under a year ago, when the going was againfirm, the four-year-old likes it here, having finished third on his other start at the track.

He comes into the race in good form after a recent all-weather win at Lingfield, though that means he needs a career-best off a mark of 72.

8.35 Perth

There will no doubt be a cake to celebrate Brodie Hampson's birthday today from the busy bakers at Fergal O'Brien's, but the yard could also provide the jockey with a winner via Benechenko.

The 11-year-old has shaped as though this evening's 3m trip will suit, and he did win a point-to-point over the same distance before joining O'Brien. He also goes well for Hampson, the pair placingsecond and third on their last two outings together.
