Verdict

It's going to be interesting to see how the four-year-old A Little Bit Dusty fares in handicap company this spring, though he returns from a break today. Special Robon, a winner twice in France last summer, may also need this and Quarton hasn't been seen since finishing third over fences at Tramore in October. MAURITINO was probably aiming a little high at Kempton on Boxing Day and will be more at home back in this grade. With Maurice Linehan claiming 7lb, he can get back to winning ways as Mark Twain has been chasing and the handicapper may have got to J'Adhere. There are possibilities about Market Rasen second Amtired and last month's Warwick winner Roll The Dice, though the latter's stable is struggling for winners at present.
