Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

Johnny Farrelly's veteran LOVE THE LEADER took advantage of his much-reduced mark to notch a ninth career success at Fakenham 10 days ago. He escapes a penalty for that and looks to have leading claims of following up from the same mark. The main threat may come from Burgess Dream, who bolted up at Plumpton last month but isn't sure to be in the same form back up in trip here.
