Forecaster is a worthy player in the Danil's Sporting Chance Fillies' Handicap at Bath.

The Royal runner is admittedly winless from six starts, but she has shown up well, to a certain extent, and can be backed with a bit of confidence here tomorrow.

Michael Bell's three-year-old was well fancied on her last visit to the races but could not quite finish the job as she came home a close third in a nine-furlong fillies' handicap at Musselburgh.

Forecaster runs at Bath off the same mark as at Musselburgh, yet this race would not appear to be quite as strong.

BATH: 2.00 Essaka, 2.30 Blue Suede, 3.00 Atalante, 3.30 FORECASTER (NAP), 4.00 Fast And Hot, 4.30 Mystique Heights, 5.00 R Bar Open.

BRIGHTON: 1.50 Miss Rosina, 2.20 Star Of The East, 2.50 Goal, 3.20 Freight Train, 3.50 Volition, 4.20 Mystical Maze, 4.50 Tahiti One.

KEMPTON: 6.10 Gunner Moyne, 6.40 Dubara, 7.10 Ballet Concerto, 7.40 Fly, 8.10 Lovely Story, 8.40 Sam Missile, 9.10 Palenville.

PONTEFRACT: 2.10 Lean On Pete, 2.40 Peach Pavlova, 3.10 Taking Libertys, 3.40 Stars Over The Sea, 4.10 Flash City, 4.40 Kiwi Bay, 5.10 Maureb.

SLIGO: 6.00 Hailstone, 6.30 Sweetasever, 7.00 Orangey Red, 7.30 Vastonea, 8.00 A Year To Remember, 8.30 Aimhirgin Lass, 9.00 Universal Focus.

YARMOUTH: 5.20 The Ducking Stool, 5.50 Iconic Belle, 6.20 Snappy Guest, 6.50 Aflame, 7.20 Captain Bob, 7.50 Cosmopolitan Girl, 8.20 Sacred Harp
