Verdict

Gullane One and Dusty were both engaged at Haydock yesterday. Elation got off the mark over course and distance last month but RASTACAP was more impressive at Newcastle when making all and beating favourite Chief Justice, who had earlier chased home the useful Beatbox Rhythm at Pontefract. Showmethedough is getting closer but Bustam was beaten when odds-on at Ayr in July and is starting to look exposed. Tashaaboh is drawn wide and is making his debut in decent novice company but cost 120,000 euros as a foal and has a nice pedigree so should win races.
