Lay Kibaar @ 1.684/6 in the 14:10 at Bath 

Back Ginzan @ 11.010/1 in the 14:40 at Bath 

Back Farlow @ 4.216/5 in the 16:50 at Newcastle 

We start with our lay of the day at Bath where Kibaar has been surprisingly weak in the 14:10 Maiden over five furlongs, drifting out to 1.684/6 from a low of 1.434/9. The John Hills colt ran a cracker in a Conditions race at Ascot where he was unlucky not to take the spoils when bumped by the eventual winner Escalating. But that was on soft ground and, given quicker ground today allied with a disappointing eighth from 13 on debut, we think he's worth taking on for a relatively low liability. 

Staying at Bath and the 14:40 Handicap over 6f, where Ginzan has been well supported from 15.2 in to 11.010/1. This Bath specialist must know every blade of grass at the Somerset track and is a multiple course and distance winner. Her last win came here on good-to-firm ground and, off a 3lb lower mark, she looks well in on that form. The six-year-old has form on good-to-soft so any change in conditions won't be a worry and a double-figure price looks good for a mare who doesn't know how to run a bad race here.

It's up to Newcastle for our other recommended back. The 16:50 looks a tricky looking contest but Farlow has been popular, backed from a high of 5.49/2 in to 4.216/5 to challenge King Of Eden for favouritism. Richard Fahey's gelding has run in very competitive races this season and his form has been eye catching. Fourth on seasonal debut in the Spring Mile at Doncaster and a winner on his second start at Thirsk beating Askaud, who has gone on to run well in listed races. Even though a competitive Handicap, this task looks a bit easier and, despite giving weight all round, he should be hard to beat.
