Rust got his head up on the line to win a maiden race at Catterick. He's facing a more difficult task back in handicap company and THE DUKKERER is preferred. Gary Moss' filly won nicely over today's trip at Leicester last month and gets the nod on that form. Irish raider Erelight is not the most consistent but went close at Roscommon last month while It's All A Game scored over a mile in soft ground at Newcastle back in May but has struggled on faster surfaces since.
