D'URBERVILLE added a victory here to his couple of Polytrack wins when scoring over C&D last week. He stayed on well to keep the runner-up at bay and finished well clear of the rest of the field. A similar performance will be enough to land a quick double. Adam De Beaulieu finally got off the mark in a modest maiden here last time but may struggle back in handicap company and heavy ground Yarmouth winner Cuckoo Rock may prove a better proposition.
