News of Wednesday's action from Bath where apprentice Georgia Cox enjoyed the first double of her career.

Georgia Cox (L, orange/blue) rode the first double of her career

Jockey Georgia Cox enjoyed the first double of her career when steering Silverrica and Lapilli to victory at Bath.

The 7lb claimer got a dream run near the far rail on Silverrica (11-2) to repeat last year's success in the Dribuild Group Apprentice Training Series Handicap for trainer Malcolm Saunders.

"You can easily put a line through last time because she slipped coming out of the stalls. That was her race over," said Cox.

"This time everything went right for her. She's a grinder and just keeps going."

Cox then gave the 8-15 favourite Lapilli, trained by William Haggas, a confident ride to collar Entertaining Ben in the final half a furlong and take the honours by a neck.

"It was a bit of a funny race. I just couldn't get him into a rhythm. Hopefully he'll build on that," she said.

"That was my third winner since I came back and I'm trying to make up for lost time."
