In depth

Verdict

Iver Bridge Lad returns to handicap company for the first time since finishing fourth at Meydan back in March. He's certainly good enough to land this at his best but a chance is taken on the less exposed UBETTERBEGOOD. A winner in Italy over today's trip, he beat Ajjaadd and Harrison George over 5f at this track a fortnight ago and further improvement is expected under Robert Cowell's tutelage. Swiss Cross went close at Lingfield a week ago and makes more appeal than Outpost and Mac Gille Eoin who are both upped in class.
