Verdict

Fantasy King won over a shorter trip here last month and was second over hurdles behind stablemate Captain Brown here on Saturday. Baileys Concerto ran at this meeting 12 months ago but has never won off a mark this high. Cut The Corner has struggled since winning at Market Rasen last month while this may be too competitive for Amuse Me but Dauphine Ereine could be anything after three wins in minor company in France and gets a hefty allowance. Peter Bowen's stable won this year ago and WADSWICK COURT looked as though his turn wasn't far away when runner-up last time at Southwell – he can go one better.
