Verdict

FAMOUS POET continues to make steady progress and, though a 9lb rise for his comeback win at Kempton looks a bit harsh at first glance, he won with plenty in hand and gets the nod to confirm superiority with runner-up Lucky Henry. Go Dutch, Master Of Ages and Shamahan all ended last year with victories and are worth noting while Dissent ran well on his handicap debut at Kempton in November. Mr Maynard is going backwards but Magic Destiny could figure if coping with the fast ground.
