2.15: Spa Hill won a bumper in Ireland and was placed there four times he makes his debut here for new connections and could run into a place. It is a tight call between Paul Nicholls Maxi Chop who certainly has the ability to take this contest but questions must be asked after pulling up last time, therefore BOHEMIANRHAPSODY is our selection he has the better recent form having finished a close fourth at Worcester last month.
Monday sees the first of three meetings coming up in July at Newton Abbot, when the course stages a seven-race card that gets underway at 2.15pm with the Visit Newton Abbot Racecourse On Facebook Maiden Hurdle.
The Triton Galleries Maiden Hurdle 2m 6f looked on paper a moderate affair and it proved so as the market leaders finished well clear with half the field beaten before the halfway mark. Despite an awkward jump at the last the 8/11 favourite KALMBEFORETHESTORM trained by Helen Nelmes and ridden by Paul Moloney kept on well to hold off the strong challenge of the second favourite Black Cow with the winning margin a neck.
6.00: KALMBEFORETHESTORM looks to have the best form in this contest he was placed twice here last summer over 2m 3f on good to firm ground. The Sweetner ran a very good third here to Vesperal Dream over the distance last month and will be a danger if repeating that form, Penzflo was place in a point and makes debut under rules here could be a good price.
