Duster is back on the same mark as when scoring over C&D in June and should be in the mix once again. Centrifugal bids for hat trick after his latest victory over track and trip though both wins came on fast ground while Comrade Bond's winning run came to end off today's mark at Thirsk last week. Myboyalfie landed a double in June but in lesser grade races and Schoolmaster may be capable of better still having finished runner-up at Newmarket last time. However, the vote in an open race goes to POISSON D'OR, well beaten in a Group 3 at Goodwood last month but progressing nicely before that and making her handicap debut today.
