Verdict

The soft ground won't inconvenience SWIFTLY DONE and Declan Carroll's in-form four-year-old is taken to bounce back to winning ways here, despite a career-high mark. Staff Sergeant stays further but went close over this trip at Redcar last month and makes more appeal than Desert Creek and Breakheart, who have both struggled so far this year. She's A Character may get bogged down but Silvery Moon is back in the right grade and has to be respected, while Outpost has the scope for further improvement in a visor. Veiled Applause has been knocking on the door again lately but was behind Hail Bold Chief at Doncaster last month and has gone up in the weights again since.
