Panther Patrol won an apprentices race at Newbury last week and should be in the mix once again. Dominium has to come into the reckoning having slipped down the weights with Richard Hughes taking over the reins. But LADY PHILL has also tumbled down the handicap having started this year on a 13lb higher mark. She went close when third at Salisbury and looks set for a return to winning ways. Khelfan has scope for further progress and could go well from the bottom of the weights.
