Verdict

Supreme Duke has returned to form between the flags and raced in better company when last seen over fences, though that was over three years ago. SERGEANT PINK has been in fine form on the fast going this summer and has already won twice here and at Perth. This is slightly more difficult but he's in better shape than the likes of Sean Airgead and Cootehill and can continue his successful season. Father Shine fell over hurdles at Market Rasen and was beaten a long way when runner-up at Southwell previously.
