Verdict

Lady Rosamunde will have come on for her recent reappearance and the same comment applies to Trend Line. Thundering Home and Beggers Belief have been in decent form on Polytrack of late but Darsan won a lesser contest at Yarmouth last week and this is much tougher under a penalty. O MA LAD doesn't leap off the page given he's been well beaten in three starts so far this year, but those defeats came in much better company and a return to this level may bring out the best in Sylvester Kirk's charge and his best is certainly good enough to land this.
