Verdict

Barons Spy and Fathsta are both C&D winners but will need things to fall their way drawn out wide. Idler is inconsistent but won cosily at Kempton last week while Rusty Rocket is upped in class after a recent win at Catterick. Mr David has claims on his latest fourth at Haydock and had Dubai Hills behind when runner-up on the Polytrack earlier but it should pay to stick with VERSE OF LOVE. He had Dr Red Eye well behind when scoring over a mile here last time and dropping down a grade off a 4lb higher mark, David Evans' charge is fancied to go in again.
