Verdict

The progressive Greeley landed a hat-trick of handicap wins with a cosy success at Windsor but has been raised 9lb. DAAFR is preferred having finished well ahead of Bercheny when narrowly beaten at Kempton on his handicap debut and John Gosden’s charge gets the nod on that form. Even Keel won a handicap at Newbury last month while Mordred and Indomitable have scored in novice company but both step up in trip. Love Your Work was placed in this grade at Newcastle last time is preferred to maiden winner Rajinsky.
