Verdict

Sirobbie beat Silent Encore two lengths here just over three weeks ago with Glorious Boru back in fifth. A 5lb rise is by no means excessive and he makes more appeal than stablemate Brandy James but the less-exposed DU DESTIN ran well after a break and a wind operation at Market Rasen in December and gave the impression a race like this should be within his capabilities.
