          Verdict

          CHANCE looks to be on a pretty steep upward curve having won both handicap starts with plenty to spare – the hat-trick beckons for Simon Crisford’s colt. Highwaygrey has been racing over further but seems to have found some consistency and will be staying on in the closing stages. William Haggas tries the lightly-raced Moftris in cheekpieces and Potenza is on a roll, though up against it here upped in grade off a 9lb higher mark.
