Verdict

DELPH CRESCENT has taken an inevitable rise in the weights after a wide-margin win at Beverley, but he knuckled down well to defy a penalty at York, and appears to be thriving now things have finally clicked for him; he could hardly be better drawn in his hat-trick bid, and gets a narrow verdict over Kassar, who has his quirks, but is also getting his act together with blinkers to help. Poetic Force has conditions to suit, and is running consistently well of late, so merits respect, with The Night Porter suggested as the best outsider.
  1. Delph Crescent
  2. Kassar
  3. Poetic Force
