The four-year-old Pashan Garh has form in better company than this but won't be getting any better after 16 starts and is likely to find a few of his younger and less-exposed rivals too strong. Pearl Angel has been placed at Lingfield and Warwick in her two starts to date while Pucker Up was second in a four-runner race at Bath last month. Mosman and Joyous have shown some ability and Loud is a probably a newcomer to note if the market speaks in his favour but DUTIFUL SON probably wouldn't need to improve much on his reappearance at Redcar to go one better here and will strip fitter today.
