Verdict

A couple of these have been winning on the Flat including Gold Chain. She also won a selling hurdle over track and trip back in May. But POETIC VERSE is rated higher than the former on the level and has been placed in better company over timber. She scored at Doncaster last month and can open her account back over obstacles. Rolling Dough had an off-day at Newton Abbot last time but won off a 5lb lower mark here earlier. She's preferred to Faith Jicaro and the remainder.
