Verdict

SPICE HILL was having only his second start over hurdles when runner-up in a Worcester seller last month. He's won a point-to-point so has some ability and looks the one to be on in the second division of this novices' handicap. Edgar Jones is eased in grade and is starting to come down the weights but Moscow In April has questions to answer after being pulled up at Worcester last time and blinkers would need to improve Renagisha for her to play a part.
