DARNATHEAN may have proved troublesome on the way to post at Yarmouth but he stayed on stoutly to post a solid second and having already obliged twice this year, he can get back to the winners enclosure on this occasion. Fantasy Gladiator may be more exposed than most, but his yard are back among the winners and he is John Quinn's only runner at the meeting. Graphic was particularly well backed at Kempton last time and the former Richard Hannon inmate still appears to be well treated on the pick of his form. Prince Of Burma is retried in blinkers and takes a drop in trip having ran disappointingly over further. Dance Express realised just £5000 at the sales but Clive Cox could have a bargain on his hands as she won a Wolverhampton maiden before going close on reappearance at Windsor.
