Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a NAP, Next Best and Each Way selection at Bath on Wednesday.
"...he is a confident selection to follow up in a race that is lacking depth..."
NAP: Eight of Diamonds has a strong chance
Eight of Diamonds - 19:00 Bath
Eight of Diamonds looked a winner-in-waiting on his return at Wolverhampton and duly confirmed himself a well-handicapped horse when opening his account at Lingfield two weeks ago, only scoring by a head, but having much more in hand than that margin implies. The handicapper has raised him 4 lb, which is perfectly fair, and he is a confident selection to follow up in a race that is lacking depth.
NEXT BEST: Promotion ready to strike
Promotion - 19:30 Bath
Promotion offered little on his handicap debut at Wolverhampton in March, but left that run well behind when a good third at Salisbury three weeks ago, looking well suited by a step up in trip and first-time cheekpieces. That was a horribly messy race, too, so the form does look muddling, but Promotion travelled as though on a good mark, and won't have to improve much on that performance to get his head in front here.
EACH WAY: Life's A Beach capable of better
Life's A Beach - 20:30 Bath
Life's A Beach was seemingly brought along with handicaps in mind last season, but he failed to improve as expected on his debut in this sphere at Kempton when last seen in August. The fact his started the 6/5 favourite on that occasion tells us that much better was expected, but he endured a wide trip throughout, and is well worth another chance to confirm himself on a good mark. A good-topped colt, he is the sort to improve further this year.
