Verdict

Bygones Of Brid made all at Sedgefield earlier this month but is 6lb higher now and might get taken on for the lead here by Act Of Kalanisi. Richard Newland's charge is a bit of a character but capable on his day and had Veloce behind when scoring at Leicester in December. Satanic Beat was harshly raised 9lb after winning over course and distance a couple of weeks ago but is still preferred to Rock Relief and Robbie, who remains high enough in the weights. DARTFORD WARBLER is the one most likely to profit if the pace is strong as he stays further and is back on a winning mark. He'll also appreciate the good going more than most.
