Verdict

DUTIFUL is the form horse in the finale and gains the vote ahead of Jubail and Sir Bruno. The selection was successful at Leicester before performing well and finishing second at Pontefract off a five pound higher mark. He runs off the same mark once again and with luck in running he will not be far away come the business end of the race. Jubail is unexposed with only four runs under his belt. He has shown some decent enough form in a couple of those races to suggest he is good enough to win a race of sorts, but the betting market will be the best guide to his chances. Top weight Sir Bruno is yet to get his head in front but has run well in defeat on a number of occasions. He has finished closely in behind quite a few subsequent winners and for that reason the handicapper has been reluctant to drop him. He has slowly come down to what looks like a realistic mark and deserves respect. Dutiful looks a horse on the up grade and is worth staying on the right side of.
