Bin Singspiel failed to quicken up when a strongly-supported runner-up at Yarmouth last time and this looks a tougher task for him, though he remains one to be interested in. Poetic Verse has been in blinding form on various artificial surfaces throughout the winter and now is asked to reproduce that improvement returned to Turf. Guaranteed fitness will serve her well and she holds EL MASSIVO on Polytrack form. However, the latter appeals as a potential improver after just the four runs and should appreciate the move to a natural surface. The Fallon booking strengthens his case and he's a hopeful choice in a tricky finale as Jebril may struggle off top weight and Relentless looked rather quirky at Southwell last time and is now tried in blinkers.
