      Verdict

      FORCE opened his account at Haydock with plenty to spare and can go in again. Princess Kodia has been competing in much better company since winning her maiden and will find this easier, as will War Department, but Hope Cove, Valko and Dylan Alexander have all been beaten in handicaps since winning their respective maidens. The same comment also applies to Florencio but he drops in class for this and is preferred to Silent Dreamer, a disappointment at Chester last time.
