Verdict

Desert Ranger is upped in trip but has yet to show a great deal on Turf. Fellow three-year-old Shasta Daisy is proving disappointing and is now tried in a hood while Saskia's Dream is tricky to catch right and was last on her reappearance over 6f here last month. JONNIE SKULL can record a seventh course win after an improved fourth over a mile at Newmarket. He's now 5lb lower than when scoring over track and trip last August and has ground conditions is in his favour.
