Verdict

Former pointer BAGGING TURF made an encouraging debut under Rules at Towcester. She does look a little one-paced but none of her rivals have shown a similar level of form so far. Huntingdon fourth Hollow Bay and Top And Drop, who filled the same position at Plumpton, looks the two most likely challengers as Mari Me Oscar and Tara Well are already starting to look exposed.
