This is Dutiful Son's first try on the all-weather but he has every chance if taking to the surface. Random Success improved for the fitting of a hood over course and distance two weeks ago and only found one too good. He'll be fancied to go one better but preference is for DISCUSSIONTOFOLLOW, who probably need only reproduce his run behind Sky Garden at Catterick in August to get off the mark here. With the exception of newcomer Jenny Twigg, the others are exposed and facing a stiff task at the weights.
