Verdict

Almost all of these arrive in good form. Marcus Caesar only won a seller here but had run well in a handicap at Ayr earlier. Someone's Darling beat a small field at Ayr and was a bit unlucky in-running when attempting a follow up at Haydock. Daryl Byrne was on board when DENNIS made a successful handicap debut at Catterick and keeps the mount on Tim Easterby's charge, who has only been raised 2lb. There's more to come and he can complete a double though Bousatet will be a threat as he appeared to find a mile too far at Musselburgh.
