Verdict

SOLAR SPIRIT is upped 5lb for scoring at Catterick 12 days ago but won off today's mark last season and gets the nod to follow up. Illustrious Prince recorded his earlier double over 7f while Diamond Blue steps up a grade under a penalty for winning at Carlisle during the week. Keep It Dark finished ahead of Celtic Sixpence when runner-up at Thirsk earlier, though he never threatened the winner so Indego Blues looks best of the remainder.
