Forecast

Dutiful Son (4/7), Haraz (7/2), Strategic Heights (4/1), Bridge Builder (12/1), Footstepsintherain (12/1), Lucky Di (16/1), Corporal Maddox (20/1)

Verdict
DUTIFUL SON held on to score by the minimum margin last week but this looks a lot easier. His previous effort off an unfavourable weight in a claimer gives him an outstanding chance against rivals who are mostly exposed as moderate. None more so than Haraz who has gone 28 races without a win and who does not appear to relish a battle. Bridge Builder looks held by the selection on last week's run and Strategic Heights is a doubtful stayer. Footsepsintherain has been off 20 months since an impressive Kempton success. That form would be good enough here if the market indicated he was ready.
