In depth

Verdict

THE LATE LEGEND has been in great form, winning by wide margins at Sedgefield and over track and trip last month. The handicapper has reacted by raising him 11lb but a hat-trick beckons. Auld Sod still had a chance when unseating his rider last time and The Manuscript will have needed his run at Fontwell. Friends Don't Ask is preferred to Easter Eric and It's For Alan of the remainder.
