Verdict

Plenty of these have question marks against them and recent Taunton third MR YEATS could prove the answer given he's still got few miles on the clock and should be suited by this stiffer test of stamina on just his second go in handicaps. Postie is another low-mileage sort who needs considering, with Top Beak weighted to have a say too if shrugging off a modest Wetherby effort.
