I’d be really keen to oppose Dusart if he turns up here. He’d likely turn up a short price favourite after winning well on debut and the having obvious Simonsig relation tag to shoulder.
He may face the horse who chased him home that day, Soaring Glory, although on 6lbs worse terms. Granted he’d be open to improvement having only made his racecourse debut at Newbury, although I’m not entirely convinced.
Soaring Glory lined up on this card last season in the listed bumper. That race last year has an unbelievably solid look to it and the first 6 home that day all look capable of carving out pretty decent careers. He was second best once more that day, although a horse who was a place further back is the one I quite like here.
Shantou Express is improving at a rate of knots for Kim Bailey and is capable of seeing it out if, as expected, the mud is flying.
A nice few prospects in this though and I hope we get the majority to post. For anyone in the dark regarding that bumper form I mentioned do go and have a look. Serious race that one
