    Verdict

    Plenty with claims in this including Falsify, who beat Your Gifted and Ohsosecret over track and trip last month. The latter has since gone within a head of winning at Goodwood while Give Us A Belle also suffered a narrow-margin defeat at Wolverhampton on his latest start. Extreme Supreme drops back down a grade and is preferred to recent Lingfield winner Billy Red but has something to find with top weight RED INVADER on latest running at Newmarket. The latter is taken to add to two course and distance victories by landing this.
