Malina Jamila had a good chance in the 2.25 Newton Abbot yesterday. TIGER ORCHID was also a useful sort in bumpers but she has already been beaten a couple of times over hurdles. However, there is still untapped potential and she is sure to have had plenty of schooling since last in action. William Of York, Feast and The Bold Thady may need the experience.
