Verdict

Yorkist got off the mark over hurdles on his 10th attempt here 12 days ago but doesn't appeal as the type to follow up under a penalty, though Nathan Moscrop's claim wipes out the 7lb extra and he did finish a long way in front of Persian Peril that day. We prefer DARK DUNE who is making steady progress and only found one too good over this course and distance last month. Askamore Darsi made a winning start under Rules when landing a Uttoxeter bumper and is an obvious danger.
