      Verdict

      JEWELLED DAGGER ended a long losing run when scoring over track and trip on his seasonal debut. He should be able to cope with a 6lb rise in this company and can follow-up. Story Writer made an inauspicious Turf debut at Bath but has claims on the best of his form on Polytrack while Tijori also has a shout dropping back in trip. Kashgar is looking to take advantage of a slide down the weights on his return and Dream Catcher is another back on a winning mark. Cuckoo Rock is only 2lb higher than when scoring at Warwick in June last year and may get involved.
