This will be the 25th time the son of Dylan Thomas has been to Bath and the latest of those outings suggested the six-year-old’s winning turn may be imminent.

A length defeat at the hands of the useful and well-handicapped Archimedes was another credible effort in a strong time and the selection’s ability to handle very fast ground will be another vital attribute this evening.

Christine Dunnett ended a lengthy wait for a Yarmouth winner earlier this month when Agent Of Fortune edged out stablemate SHYJACK (Yarmouth, 5.25) to land a modest Class 6 handicap.

Sent off 40-1 that day, Shyjack clearly exceeded market expectations with George Wood on board and the combination appear to boast a leading chance again this afternoon.

REBEL STATE (Catterick, 4.45) is going to need a genuine gallop to run at now he returns to seven furlongs but he remains competitively handicapped judged on recent efforts and he possesses a number of solid speed figures to suggests today’s race is well within his compass.
