Verdict

MASTER OF SUSPENSE opened his account at Beverley when dropped back to the minimum trip. He has further scope for improvement now he's got his head in front. Royal Brave beat Red Lady and National Service at Sandown in July and went close again at Musselburgh last time. He's preferred to Drive On, who had been running well on the all-weather before a poor effort at Newbury. Flying Bear is dropped in class and may also figure.
