Forecast

Michaels Choice (2/1), Swiss Pride (4/1), London Rock (6/1), Pont Vert (6/1), Second Collection (12/1), Nananita (14/1), Comete (14/1), Lady Wolf (20/1), North Korea (25/1), Coastguard Watch (25/1), Ever Rock (33/1), Glamorous Crescent (50/1), Nagging Doubt (100/1)

Verdict
A numerically challenging Bath card kicks-off with an open-looking nursery. Top-weight Swiss Pride has the strongest form in the book (Glorious Goodwood), but needs to bounce back from a very poor effort latest (could well do so under more suitable conditions). The newly blinkered Comete and Michaels Choice also merit consideration, with the former facing the challenging objective of getting to the front early from her wide draw. However, we'll side with the nursery debutante PONT VERT. Off the track for a couple of months since winning at Leicester, but that form has been well advertised by the placed horses since, so she rates as the possible solution.
  1. Pont Vert
  2. Michaels Choice
  3. Swiss Pride
