Verdict

Rated 77, Liquid Lunch should have done better at Carlisle last month and Summer Blossom has also had plenty of chances having returned a losing favourite on several occasions. Finch Hatton failed to land the odds when only third at Kempton last time but THE COTSWOLD WASP showed a big improvement when runner-up at Pontefract despite having to switched for a clear run and John Quinn’s colt rates the selection on that form. Epaulini and Miss Sabina are likely improvers in a competitive novices races.
