Bath - Wednesday 23rd August 2017

  • 13:45 - Dribuild Group Apprentice Handicap

    Silverrica warrants plenty of respect as she bids to win this race for the third year running but it's difficult to get away from hat-trick seeking OUR LORD. Michael Attwater's charge built on his impressive Salisbury success when scoring in determined fashion over this C&D and a further 4lb rise might not be enough to anchor him. Field of Vision is another in-form player with claims.

  • 14:15 - Friary Vintners European Breeders Fund Novice Stakes

    Go Roo is out of 5f winner Cross My Heart and merits a market check ahead of his racecourse debut, but this might be between experienced runners Expecting and YAFTA. The former has improved with each start thus far and should go close, but Richard Hannon's colt arguably brings the slightly stronger form to the table and gets the vote to open his account at the fourth attempt.

  • 14:50 - Graham Plumbers Merchant Handicap (Div 1)

    Sakhalin Star bravely won a selling handicap at Beverley last week and should go well under a 6lb penalty, but preference is for last year's winner EUGENIC. He finds himself on the same mark as when successful 12 months ago and recent placed efforts both here and at Brighton read well. With Silvestre De Sousa keeping the ride, he looks sure to play a leading role. Eben Dubai and handicap debutant Koubba are others to note.

  • 15:25 - Graham Plumbers Merchant Handicap (Div 2)

    SPIRIT OF THE VALE edges the vote in a tricky handicap. Oliver Greenall's filly ran right up to her best when runner-up on the all-weather at Newcastle last time, and with Kevin Stott back in the plate (onboard for both career wins thus far), she looks sure to be in the firing line again. Edge demands respect following his half-length defeat at Salisbury while Chilli Jam may improve for his comeback fourth.

  • 16:00 - University And Literary Club EBF Fillies' Handicap

    TARTE TROPEZIENNE got off the mark in fine fashion at Ripon last time out when heavily supported in the betting, and the suspicion is that an opening mark of 79 is on the generous side for William Haggas' charge. The Newmarket-based handler is 12-36 at this venue in recent years and could account for Satisfy, who has scope for improvement and did it well at Leicester recently, and Green Or Black, who represents a trainer in fine recent form.

  • 16:35 - Parker Transport SW Handicap

    Peachey Carnehan is likely to be popular in the betting given that he is due to go up 6lb in the future for a couple of recent routine victories at Doncaster and Leicester this month, while Delagate This Lord is entitled to go well after knuckling down well to get off the mark at Newbury in June. SECRET AGENT drops in class for William Muir and first-time blinkers back on better ground can see the three-year-old return to winning ways.

  • 17:10 - Ey And Guests Handicap (Qualifier)

    HOPE IS HIGH continues to thrive under Silvestre De Sousa and impressed when routing the field at Yarmouth six days ago. The four-year-old looks ideally suited by race conditions and could have too much staying power for this opposition once more under the champion-elect. Powered often runs well in defeat but isn't the easiest to win with, while Penny Poet should have learnt plenty from her handicap debut last time out and should appreciate this return to turf.

  • 17:40 - Happy Wedding Anniversary Alex And Liz Handicap

    NUTINI showed a reasonable level of form in Ireland when trained by Madeleine Tylicki and looks to be a nice acquisition for the Malcolm Saunders team. A lightly-raced four-year-old, the son of Lope De Vega is versatile and could make a winning start to life in the UK. Rinaria ran well despite being keen last time and should enjoy this slight drop in distance, while a first-time hood could spark a revival from Hot Mustard.

  • 13:45 - Dribuild Group Apprentice Handicap

    OUR LORD has quickly taken his form to a new level for Michael Attwater in recent weeks and there's no reason why he cannot complete the hat-trick following a further 4 lb rise. Field of Vision also won last time and remains with scope on old form, while the hardy Seamster deserves plaudits for his consistency.

    Timeform 1-2-3

  • 14:50 - Graham Plumbers Merchant Handicap (Div 1)

    EUGENIC is on the same mark as when successful over C&D at a similar time last year and holds obvious claims under Silvestre De Sousa. The fact Sakhalin Star has a couple of wins to his name this summer makes him of plenty of interest in a race like this, while Eben Dubai has good efforts to his name here of late and should figure again.

    Timeform 1-2-3

  • 15:25 - Graham Plumbers Merchant Handicap (Div 2)

    EDGE took a step back in the right direction when third at Salisbury recently and has the potential to build on that based on last year's form. Spirit of The Vale made a sound return from a break on AW recently and won't be far away if she can translate that to the grass, while Just Fred is still a maiden but wasn't beaten far over C&D last time.

    Timeform 1-2-3

  • 17:10 - Ey And Guests Handicap (Qualifier)

    HOPE IS HIGH did it easily at Yarmouth last week and a 6 lb penalty is unlikely to stop her if turning up in similar form. Captain George posted a sound effort when third here last time and should be on the premises again, while Penny Poet is much less exposed than the majority of these and has the potential to build on her AW handicap debut in March now switching to turf after a break.
