Verdict

Some interesting types in this and it might take a little bit of winning although a few may need a little further or a greater test of stamina. Timeforben got the run of the race last time out but still shaped as though she could win something like this. Biscuit will need to show more than she has so far after disappointing last time and the time away from the track may count against Potters Midnight. The JP McManus pair Youknowell and Your Wan are of obvious interest although both may need more time and further. SPICE GIRL marked herself down as progressive when winning three bumpers in a row (a rare feat) and if she takes to hurdles she could continue her progress.
  1. Spice Girl
  2. Timeforben
  3. Your Wan
