Residence And Spa was due to run with a better chance at Newton Abbot yesterday and had previously gone 23 starts without winning. Bach On Tow was probably fortunate to score here three weeks ago but should be capable of better and loves fast ground. CASTLEMORRIS KING makes a quick reappearance after producing his best run to date at Wincanton on Sunday and a repeat of that should see him home. Party Palace scored on the Flat in February and though, she's only won once from 22 starts over timber, has to be considered here.
