Verdict

VERSE OF LOVE looks most likely to run his race in a big field. He made all at Epsom during the week, should get a clean break from his low draw and an apprentice negates his 6lb penalty. Alejandro could also take up a decent position from his decent draw having finished third over C&D a fortnight ago. He makes most appeal of Richard Fahey's four runners ahead of Brae Hill but the likes of Powerful Presence, Strictly Silver and Toto Skyllachy will need luck in-running from their high stall numbers. Bannock is preferred to stablemate Galician and Imperial Djay usually runs well at this track.
