Verdict

Adobe has been knocking at the door and can pay to support here, with Harry Potter, Wood Dalling and Regent's Secret likely to give him most to do. Mark Brisbourne's nine-year-old was a beaten favourite at Bath nine days ago when overhauled in the closing stages by Over To You, and off his current mark, must surely make amends soon. The son of Green Desert is getting on a bit now but has been a prolific winner in his time, and while the going is fast, can be expected to rattle up another success or two. Harry Potter in contrast would prefer softer underfoot conditions than he will encounter here, but was good enough to score in Listed company when trained in Germany and showed with his win at Thirsk in April that he is settling in now. Wood Dalling finally made the most of a lenient mark when coming good at Carlisle four days ago and turned out again quickly, he carries a six-pound penalty. He can go well along with Regent's Secret, another well treated individual these days. It should be a decent contest to close the card, and one in which we like the look of Adobe.
