Verdict

Desert Colours carried over his good form from the all-weather to score over 7f here in April. But he was all out to hang on for victory last time and is upped a further 7lb. Connor Beasley's allowance should see Majorities finish closer on only his second start handicapping and Rainbow Rock also has a shout after going very close at Southwell last week. But SPICEUPYOURLIFE should have no problem staying this longer trip having forged clear over the stiff 7f at Beverley last time and she's taken to defy a 6lb rise and go in again.
