      Verdict

      DATA PROTECTION followed a battling victory at Epsom with a fair effort when second on the same track from 3lb higher and can return to winning ways. First Response, a winner at Dundalk for Ger Lyons, ran his best race for new connections when just touched off over 1m2f at Beverley last month though that was a lower grade contest. Miss Sheridan wins her share of races and scored here in May from just 2lb lower but Amor Fati has struggled since being raised 11lb for a very easy victory at Chepstow. Hammer Gun has managed to win eleven times and almost made it a dozen on his favourite track at Doncaster last week when just failing to catch Dubai Acclaim under Noel Fehily in a Legends race.
