    Verdict

    Rebecca Bastiman has a strong hand with BE BOLD and Leeshaan. The former is better over slightly further but conditions will make this testing and his recent close third on soft ground at Ayr sets the standard. His stable companion is having his 25th start but is on his lowest-ever mark and his latest effort at Ayr was his best for some time. Cameo Star is held on that latter run but Dreamseller had been in good form before a poor run on Fibresand at Southwell which obviously didn't suit and he looks a threat. The latter's stablemate Cawthorne Lad showed a bit of promise as a two-year-old and was having his first subsequent start when stumbling and falling at Ripon in June.
