None of these inspire much confidence and a purely tentative vote goes to DUALITE. She ran much better than her eight-length defeat in a handicap at Salibury would suggest as she only gave way close home in the soft ground. There should be more to come from John Dunlop's filly here. Fluctuation improved to finish runner-up on the Fibresand last time and could figure, but Comrade Bond has gone up 3lb for finishing second over C&D last month. Valeo Si Vales is worth considering though, especially if the first-time blinkers produce some improvement.
