Impressive Epsom winner, Le Bon De Vie and the raft of three-year-olds Mark Johnston has entered into this handicap should ensure this 12 furlong contest is run at a furious gallop, something which should play into the hands of DURSTON, who has won two Class Two Handicap this season and still looks a step or two ahead of the handicapper.

David Simcock’s charge secured some good results during his winless juvenile campaign, finishing a strong second to Surfman before a decent fourth behind London Gold Cup runner-up, Sinjaari. A step up to 14 furlong resulted in a maiden victory in handicap company on his reappearance at Doncaster, a result Durston built on during Chester’s May Festival, flying home from the rear of the field to land an £18k prize.

Lariat is a decent yard-stick and Durston dealt with him comfortably at Chester. The form of his Doncaster victory was boosted too when runner-up, Themaxwecan scored at Ascot last week. Simcock’s colt will be gaining weight on most of his rivals at the head of the market and his preferred waiting tactics could pay dividends around this tight track.
