WANDSWORTH continued his good progress when scoring on his handicap debut over track and trip. He's asked to improve again taking on better company today but looks up to the task. Alfred Hutchinson was well backed here last week and duly obliged. He's closely matched with Verse Of Love on earlier form while the latter will do well to confirm running at Kempton on worse terms with Favourite Treat. Maverik has the beating of Well Painted but looks high enough in the weights while Rakaan is still capable on his day as when scoring over a longer trip here earlier in the month.
