    Verdict

    Versifier is by champion stayer Yeats so stamina won’t be a problem. Diamond Dust is a half-sister to five winners and also worth a market check but we'll stick with the experienced TARA VIEW. Alan King's five-year-old had more than seven lengths to spare over Kahaleesi when sixth last time at Cheltenham and should confirm that running. Skadi could be the pick of the remainder.
