In depth

Verdict

Dust To Dust has been well placed to win last two course starts and promises to be even better over this slightly longer trip. Andrew Crook's charge faces his elders for first time but has excellent claims at the weights and a bold bid is expected. Mark Johnston's stable has been flying but Danton has gone the wrong way since landing a Newcastle maiden in August and has something to prove on his return. Young-Un remains out of form and former Dante hero Salford Express is not the force of old but Saguaro has place claims on recent second here in selling company.
