BAHAMIAN BAY gave plenty of encouragement for the future on her first start for 105 days when she ran well for a long way in the five-furlong handicap at Beverley yesterday.

Mel Brittain's four-year-old was smartly away from her poor draw and was soon challenging for the lead.

The effort began to take its toll with a furlong to go and she faded out of contention to finish a respectable ninth.

Bahamian Bay, a winner twice on the allweather earlier in the year, is sure to improve for the outing and is worth bearing in mind for a similar contest over the coming months.

Another to keep an eye on is Bryan Smart's ICE MOUNTAIN who romped home in the maiden auction at Beverley to earn a possible tilt at the pounds 135,000 Weatherbys Super Sprint and could make the line-up at Newbury on Saturday if none the worse for his exertions.
