Verdict

The veteran ORPSIE BOY was in excellent form around this time a year ago from much higher marks and, with a run at Catterick behind him, he can show that he's no back-number and gain victory number twelve. Kinglami is consistent and loves the surface though he's yet to prove he stays this far but it's no problem for Poetic Lord, who won here last month before a moderate effort over further on Turf. Dimitar managed two victories on Dundalk's Polytrack for Eddie Lynam and has his first start for Brendan Powell but Lieutenant Dan is 9lb higher than for his victory over the course and distance in March.
