Verdict

It's on to the Polytrack surface for the remaining races on the card as SLIP OF THE TONGUE drops back in distance in search of a hat-trick. He scored over track and trip on his penultimate start and given he has little to beat in this, Sir Mark Prescott's charge can defy a 10lb rise. Knight's Parade looks most likely to follow the selection home though even he's struggled since landing a double on Turf back in June while Fire In Babylon was placed at Kempton at the start of the year but hasn't raced since April. 7.30
