    Verdict

    Greek Secret never looked like catching the winner when runner-up at Redcar on Wednesday, but he still finished a lot closer than ninth-placed Memphis Man. DESERT FALLS hasn't won for some time but did a lot better at Brighton last time and he gets the token vote off his current mark. Flaxen Lake has shown a bit more of late with placed efforts on the turf, but Porthgwidden Beach has gone up 4lb for losing her maiden tag over 5f at Kempton last time. Ivestar looks best of the rest.
