Verdict

High Counsel has a shout on last month’s second at Hereford though has just the one win over fences in 17 attempts. Spirit Of Hale is back on a winning mark and posted a better effort at Sedgefield last time while Timcoda finished ahead of Carlo Rocks when going close at Uttoxeter, though has failed to complete either side of that effort. MEGABOOST (NAP) showed the benefit of a comeback run when finishing a lot closer at Plumpton on her latest start having slipped down the weights. She can go close racing off the same mark.
