Verdict

Harriet Dukes won twice on RUB OF THE RELIC last year and a recent third at Newcastle suggests the latter is set to strike once again. He's just preferred to the in-form Taxiformissbyron, who is up 5lb for her win at Hamilton earlier this month. Marino Prince won over hurdles back in March but is having his first outing since and Walter De La Mare makes more appeal after going close at Bath recently.
