Timeform take you through the card at Bath on Wednesday evening.


17:20 - A competitive sprint handicap to open the card, but the one who makes most appeal is Ronald Harris' FETHIYE BOY (1), who has always shown plenty of speed, though he seems to have strengthened now, and is certainly on the progressive path. He looked better than ever when winning a handicap at Windsor this month and should remain competitive off a 4 lb higher mark. MIDNIGHTLY (2) was beaten only a length by Fethiye Boy that day and this lightly-raced filly is worth having on side, too.

17:50 - NATHANIA (9) has shown clear signs of ability in a trio of maidens so far and sets a fairly useful standard in this line-up. She shaped as though in need of the run when only fourth on her return at Lingfield last month, but she's entitled to strip fitter for that, and with this even longer trip expected to suit, she looks the one to beat.

18:25 - Archie Watson has done a great job with ATTAIN (1), who has been a model of consistency since joining his yard at the beginning of the year. He took advantage of a lower turf mark when winning a C&D handicap in good style last week, always prominent and just ridden out to score by one and a half lengths. A 6 lb penalty makes life harder, but this doesn't look the strongest race, and he looks a solid proposition.

18:55 - This has a very open look to it, but ADMIRAL'S SUNSET (3) is just the type to progress further as a four-year-old. A tall, good-topped filly she was unable to get her head in front last season, but Hughie Morrision is a dab hand with such types, and she could be the one to focus on returning from 6 months off.

19:25 - A big-field handicap that lacks depth, and CEE JAY (2) makes most appeal. He remains a maiden, which is a slight concern, but he shaped well on his first start for this yard over C&D last time, and is on a fair mark if building on that.

19:55 - MONTEAMIATA (5) opened her account in a Lingfield maiden in January and showed further improvement when runner-up on handicap debut at Windsor last time, doing very well to finish as close as she did from a difficult position as the race panned out. She has scope to do better still on pedigree and can prove herself ahead of her mark.

20:25 - OPENING TIME and HOLYROMAN PRINCESS are both bred to be better than they have showed so far, and with both sporting first-time blinkers, a chance is taken on them against the field in a very open contest.
