Verdict

Most of these are easily overlooked given their modest form to date. Spa Hill should get involved on her best efforts when trained in Ireland but was a well beaten third on her debut for a new yard at Newton Abbot. TAKE A BOW is less exposed and looks the one to beat after finishing runner-up at Ffos Las. He did well to go as close as he did having made a mess of the last obstacle and Lawney Hill's charge can open his account in this. Cherry Lodge is related to a winner on the Flat and won't need to be anything special to figure on her racecourse debut
