Verdict

SPARE PARTS made a very encouraging debut for these connections when finishing third at Lingfield last week and he is the one to beat based on that performance. Billyfairplay has been running well enough at Dundalk of late to suggest that he can take a hand in the finish today, while Bush Beauty and Spoken Words both have each-way chances.

Verdict

SPARE PARTS ran creditably when beaten under 1 length in to third on his yard debut at Lingfield 4 days ago and a repeat dropped in trip may well see him shed the maiden tag now. Billyfairplay and Bush Beauty are a couple of others to consider.
