Verdict

BERTIE BLU BOY is upped a further 7lb having landed a double over track and trip with a cosy defeat of One Last Dream on his latest start. But Black Truffle and Bold Ring finished further behind and a hat-trick beckons for Lisa Williamson's charge. Darnathean has yet to take advantage of his slide down the weights but One Way Or Another hinted at a return to form with a fourth at Wolverhampton last time and could figure. Ghost Train and My Sweet Lord may also go well after recent placed efforts over 6f.
