Verdict

Having been pulled up for the third time in a row at Ayr last month, the once-useful Diamond Frontier has a bit to prove now. LEASE LEND won over C&D off a higher mark in January last year and has performed respectably in his two starts here over further following a lay-off. Tim Easterby's gelding can recapture the winning thread in this with question marks also hanging over Pret A Thou and Best Lover. Carlisle runner-up Rossini's Dancer warrants respect, however, though lacks consistency while Prosecco won easily at Ayr last month though is now on a career-high mark.
