6:10 Bath - Class 6 – 5 furlongs – 12 runners
Not a very good race and I've no idea which horse/s will set the early pace and I've only got 2 runners with a time fast enough to register on my figures, Mostashreqah is the 2nd top rated of the pair but I think it might be better for a longer trip so this race might not be run to suit it, which leaves me with ASK THE GURU 11/1 who is rated 4lb superior and usually likes to track the leaders so ought to be able to cover any moves ahead of it and then stay on the stronger at the finish, the trainer is 1-14 with his older horses at this course and the 5lb claiming apprentice has only ridden for this stable once before which resulted in a victory so it looks a positive booking and I'm hoping it can be a winning combination again in this race and the price permits me to go with an each-way wager.

BATH 6.40 Class 4 – 5 furlongs – 7 runners
Trick Of The Light is 3rd top rated and usually tracks the leaders but needs to improve to win this Edged Out is 2nd top rated but the 5lb claiming apprentice moves it into top spot and she has ridden a winner from 5 previous rides for this stable and its 1 of 3 in the race that has led before but it won't get an easy lead in this race. SHACKLED N DRAWN 10/1 is top rated and will be tracking the leaders hoping to stay on the stronger at the finish and the jockey has 3-12 strike rate for the stable so it looks another positive booking and the race could be run to suit its style it's a shame there's only 7 runners as with 3 places it would have been a decent each way bet.

KEMPTON 8.55 Class 4 – 6 furlongs – 12 runners
This has the makings of a very nice race with 4 possible pace setters in stalls 5-8-10-11 and the stall 8 horse Showmethewayavrilo is one of my co-2nd top ratings along with Dutiful Son and Hackney Road, theres four 3year olds that could still improve especially the bottom weight who has won its last 2 starts on turf, the horse ive got well ckear is FAIRWAY TO HEAVEN 50/1 but in this particular race im not sure if stall 4 is going to be of much use but it ran quite well on its last all weather run when 2nd at Lingfield, it then had a 2 month break and its had 4 runs on turf and now switched back to the all weather and im hoping thats a good sign, any bet will be kept on the low side and im hoping theres some value in the selections price else I will leave the race alone.
PS I never expected the price to be this big but it won't put me off from having an each way bet, I said my stakes will be kept low but it would still give a decent return.
