Verdict

These sprint handicaps at Bath are notoriously hard to predict but it is safe to say there will be a strong gallop with Acclaim The Nation, Bungee Jump and Little Boy Blue all liking to press on. Delegate This Lord and Secretfact should not be long in winning, whilst the enigmatic Bahamian Sunrise is more than capable of rebounding from a dreadful run last time as he's proved in the past. Ron Harris saddles last year's winner THE DALEY EXPRESS who will be reunited with Franny Norton. The strong gallop will help and Monday's reappearance signalled he was ready to step up. Stable companion Union Rose looks his main danger.
