Verdict

Face The Problem ran up a hat-trick in maiden and handicap company last summer before being outclassed at York and Doncaster. As a three-year-old, he gets a handy weight allowance but his yard is still to emerge from its winter hibernation. Secret Asset hasn't won on turf since his two-year-old days but isn't badly treated on his all-weather form though, along with Star Rover, finished behind Five Star Junior at Lingfield last month. Iver Bridge Lad would go close if reproducing his recent form, though finds this trip plenty sharp enough nowadays, so a chance is taken on CAPTAIN DUNNE. Tim Easterby's six-year-old is a useful sprinter on his day and can also run well fresh. The fast ground is another thing in his favour and a bold bid is anticipated, despite conceding weight all round.
