          Verdict

          Farhh Away is 0-10 but has dropped to a mark from which he should be capable of winning, though today’s trip is an unknown. Majeste was second off this mark at Carlisle and any further rain would be a plus. True Romance bids for a quick-fire hat-trick under a penalty and will be staying on in the closing stages while this represents a drop in grade for Ad Libitum. DEW POND returns to the scene of his last victory. Tim Easterby’s seven-year-old did nothing wrong off this mark at Musselburgh last week and a similar effort here could see him go one better.
