Verdict

FACE THE PROBLEM was unfancied for his belated seasonal debut at Doncaster but came out best well ahead of the re-opposing Solemn and Jarrow. Kieren Fallon replaces an apprentice here which suggests better is expected from Jamie Osborne's charge and he gets the nod. Piscean scored at Newmarket last time and has won off higher marks than today on the Polytrack while recent Newbury winner Rowe Park remains on a winning mark on his best form. Last year's winner of this, Ajjaadd, is 9lb higher today and out of sorts but Kyleakin Lass is holding her form despite creeping up the weights.
