    Verdict

    After a short break, HECTOR’S HERE bolted up at Beverley. On that evidence, a 6lb rise looks fully justified and he should go in again here if an outside draw doesn’t prove too much of a disadvantage. Gabrials Boy finished close up at Haydock returning from a lay-off and looks the pick of the Fahey trio. Fairmac certainly wasn’t winning out of turn at Ayr but may be best on fast ground so wouldn’t welcome further rain. Two Brothers is improving and is best of the rest.
