In depth

Verdict

There was little between Picansort and Triple Dream when they filled the places behind Diamond Charlie over track and trip in February. The latter has since finished behind runner-up O'GORMAN at Wolverhampton and Gary Brown's charge gets the nod to go one better here and bring a frustrating run of seconds to an end. Billy Red arrives in good form and beat Falasteen, who runs in the previous race, over course and distance last month. He can figure again and Bubbly Ballerina is preferred to Piazza San Pietro of the remainder.
