There was little separating Call Of Duty and Camerooney when they filled the places at Hamilton a fortnight ago. Likewise Ellaal and Royal Straight when they finished second and third respectively over track and trip last time. The veteran Dhaular Dhar went close over 1m4f here on his latest start and could figure but this looks less competitive than the race won by Kuwait Star at Haydock where he beat JANAAB by only a nose. The latter can go one better with a similar effort in a really tight handicap.
