Arlecchino's Leap proved an expensive failure at Lingfield and, having left their money in the satchels on that occasion, it would be no surprise to see his supporters attempting to recoup losses. Course form can count for plenty at Bath and RED PERDITA is sure to have learned plenty from her first start. Unseen since that appearance, her dam had a marked preference for fast ground and she can go well. Celestial Vision took part in a hot maiden at Newmarket and Jenny Powell's 7lb claim should make him competitive but Pillar Box disappointed on debut at Beverley, though he holds entries in all the big sales races so can't be ruled out too readily. Cam Hardie's 7lb allowance ensures that Jimmy's Girl carries a featherweight and her stable have traditionally done well with their juveniles at this track.
