Verdict

OUR FOLLY scored in a lesser grade event at Bath last time. He'd also gone close over track and trip at the end of last season and is taken to go one better today up against decidedly modest opposition. Beat Route won on the Polytrack in March but ran a shocker last time while Dr Finley looks stuck on his present mark on his latest fourth at Kempton. Queen's Star ended last season with a string of placed efforts and could get involved while Kayef has the past form to figure if back to his best.
