Verdict

Belated Breath, third over course and distance on her reappearance, is eased in grade and sure to be popular, though might be a couple of pounds too high at present. BURIDAN (NAP) also has his sights lowered and is back on a winning mark. His only modest run this season came when poorly drawn at Ripon last month so Richard Hannon’s gelding looks the one to be on ahead of penalised Bath scorer Red Alert. Hart Stopper, another with winning form here, may be the pick of the remainder.
