Verdict

Strong Man made a brave attempt to carry a similar burden to success over 7f at Ayr on Monday but came up short and it could be a similar story today. VERUS DELICIA is upped 5lb for her recent victory over today's trip at Chepstow but this is no tougher and she's taken to follow-up. Divertimenti remains capable at this level on his day but it's hard to predict when that will be and Errigal Lad makes more appeal back over a longer trip. Whatwehavewehold was engaged to run at Lingfield yesterday.
