Great to see Danish Duke back to winning ways after suffering an injury last year and taking time to come to himself this season. Given an uncomplicated ride by Seamus Cronin he made nearly all the running to finish 2 lengths in front of the runner up.
"A truly run handicap. DANISH DUKE, down to a mark 3lb below his last success in August 2016, was always handy and stayed on strongly to win well and land a bit of a gamble. He is entered at Haydock next week without a penalty and looks one to keep on side."

"Danish Duke takes his racing well and has come down the handicap. He's in at Haydock next week without a penalty and hopefully there'll be a bit of give in the ground again."
