Verdict

Gin And Tonic was beaten a long way in a four-runner race at Southwell and looked as though he needed further. Northern Bay had been racing in minor company in France before making his debut for David Pipe at Fontwell where he wasn't fancied on the fast going and finished well beaten. UPSANDDOWNS landed a Kilbeggan bumper a year ago and has joined Evan Williams. He had a run for his new yard here last month and with that behind him can make a successful debut over timber.
