Form & Verdict
All turf wins on good to soft or soft and a regular non-runner this year on account of good or quicker going; wide-margin winner on only occasion Serena Brotherton has ridden him, at Epsom last July, and he won off this mark later that month (both 1m4f; stays further); chance if allowed to run.

Verdict

Things have finally fallen into place for Psyche and he should be involved again but the most interesting one is the smart bumper performer OUR JESTER (nap) who ran so well against a big improver when switched to the Flat in May and goes into handicaps off a tempting mark. Orin Swift was below his best at Salisbury recently but comes into it on his earlier efforts, as does Winklevi.[Emily Weber]
