Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

A gelding operation prior to his reappearance seems to have sorted LAAFY out, as he improved on his winning Newbury form when runner-up in a well-up-to-scratch Old Newton Cup at Haydock and the step back up in trip may also be in his favour. Themaxwecan and Shailene are feared most.
