Ulster jockey Martin Harley continued his great run of form with a double in the first two races at Bath - repeating his feat of the previous night at Ffos Las.

Harley rode Love On The Rocks to victory in the Avon Valley Classic Maiden Stakes last night before immediately following up on Burnt Cream in the Charles Saunders Handicap.

Harley will attempt to maintain his hot evening form at Lingfield tomorrow.

Kodi Bear can stamp his class on the totepool Sovereign Stakes at Salisbury.

It has not been smooth sailing for Clive Cox's three-year-old colt, but he is a deeply talented animal on his day and has enough about him to win a race like this.

The son of Kodiac made quite a splash as a juvenile, winning well at Ascot before finishing second in the Dewhurst.

Kodi Bear then defeated Short Squeeze by nearly a length in a good Listed race over an extended mile.

Next up was the Prix Jean Prat in France and he ended up travelling too freely to get seriously competitive.

Cox has given him a nice few weeks of recuperation, which should have done him the power of good with this assignment in mind.
