Verdict

Another tough one for punters to fathom. Double Double makes a quick reappearance after last week's Ffos Las victory which was on heavy ground. For Two has yet to fulfil early promise but he's only five so there should be more to come as there should be from Yes Daddy, who gained his first success at Southwell a month ago. Superciliary has had a lot of racing and has suddenly found top form though he's suffered in the weights as consequence. Dark Dune went to Newcastle on a hat-trick earlier this month but was put in his place by FRANCISCAN. The winner, who has won five times on the level, made all and jumped well to gain a decisive victory and a 4lb rise shouldn't be enough to prevent a follow-up.
