Verdict

FOR BILL made a promising debut over fences when third at Clonmel on her seasonal return. She should be spot on now after last month's spin over timber and can open her account over the larger obstacles here. Bobs Display improved for her second start over fences when beaten only a length at Tramore last month, but Clever Creation was a well beaten runner-up recently and more is needed here. Back Me Up makes her chase debut after a lengthy absence but is a half-sister to a winner over fences and could figure.
