Three wins in as many days is the target for Soaked after the David Chapman-trained seven-year-old completed the second leg of the ambitious treble at Bath yesterday.

The gelding scored by half a length and at odds of 7-2 in the final race, the 8.30, at Windsor on Monday night and got up to win by a neck at surprisingly generous odds of 9-1 at Bath.

Today he travels to Brighton for the 4.40 race and, after scoring twice at five furlongs, now tackles an extra furlong at the downland course.

"That has always been the plan, as long as he's okay, and Jimmy Quinn will ride him again," Ruth Clark, Chapman's assistant, said. "He's not in anywhere on Thursday, but he's entered at Newmarket and Wolverhampton on Friday."

* Dean Gallagher will have to wait until Monday before France Galop announces its decision over his appeal against a six-month riding ban for failing a drugs test. The jockey, who has tested positive for cocaine on three separate racedays in France, appeared at an appeal hearing in Deauville yesterday.
