Verdict

SERVO is more than entitled to be forgiven a disappointing effort when returning to turf at Haydock and only beating one rival home behind Save The Bees. His recent course form is solid and he can bounce back to his best off what looks a winnable mark. Beatbybeatbybeat has been knocking on the door recently, with three seconds in her last four starts, and she is likely to be in the mix once again along with Lexington Empire, who got off the mark over C&D latest.

Verdict

LEXINGTON EMPIRE likely has more to offer after opening his account over C&D last month and can defy a 6 lb rise. Sicario is on the upgrade and has to be respected.
