Verdict

Little separated WATCHING BRIEF and Outlaw Jack when they were third and fourth at Worcester last month but they meet on the same terms and David Brace’s charge can confirm the form. He is also 7lb better off with Decoration Of War than when beaten six lengths at Cartmel, where he probably pulled too hard in the early stages. One Handsome Dude was still beaten 13 lengths when third at Market Rasen but looks the pick of the remainder.
