Verdict

It's no surprise to see several of these already dropped into selling grade as the likes of Bathwick Scanno, Rainy Champion and Red Riverman have already disappointed on more than one occasion. A Little Bit Dusty's debut win at Fontwell wasn't a bad effort, however, and he was taking on better opposition at Chepstow next time. Though, like Red Mercury, he has a penalty to carry in this. SINADINOU is no world-beater but Tim Vaughan's gelding ran his best race so far over C&D last time and looks capable of landing a contest like this while the ground remains fast.
