Sunny Hollow deserves to be winning one of these but the forecast wet weather might not be to her advantage so we'll take a chance about LITTLE CHOOSEY. Clive Cox's filly hasn't been at her best on two previous visits to Bath but she had been the subject of plenty of market confidence at Chepstow when there had been some give in the ground, and Ryan Tate's 5lb claim will certainly be no hindrance. New Rich's pedigree also suggests that there are plenty of soft ground influences although he's struggled to act on it in the past. Edged Out scored off a mark of 64 at Chepstow though he's seemed to reserve his best form for the Welsh venue. Spray Tan has won twice at Bath in the past but she has been absent since posting a below par effort at Salisbury.
