Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

VERBAL FENCING was well backed and showed improved form under a more-positive ride to get off the mark at Down Royal 13 days ago. She's fancied to go well again. White Pepper caught the eye behind that rival and this longer trip will suit. Iron Sheriff is also fancied to go well on nursery debut.
