Timeform on Spring Watch
The well-backed TIMETOGET has stepped up on her modest bumper efforts since tackling good ground over hurdles. She sets the clear standard on her placed efforts here and at Listowel and is fancied to see off Ayr of Elegance and Rovetta who both shaped well on their hurdling debut.
Horse In Focus SPRING WATCH was easy to back, yet still showed much improved form to make it second time lucky in handicaps over shorter here four weeks ago. The return to a sounder surface was the probable catalyst there and under similar conditions another big run is expected. Veteran Bye Bye O Bye and Top Of The Town are just two potential dangers.
Recent Point winner SERIOUS EGO makes plenty of appeal on paper and is taken to make a winning start for Gordon Elliott who has a lsp of £71.76 with bumper debutants since the start of the 2013/14 season. Argent Et Or is well bred and a bold showing on debut wouldn't surprise. The Abbey is probably the pick of those with experience.
