DORRY K can send punters home happy even though she's probably on a high enough mark at present. She was only second in a three-runner handicap at Uttoxeter last month but should improve on that first run since April. The remainder are a modest bunch with Tri Nations probably not the force of old. Take The Crown has gone backwards since his second at Towcester in May and Auto Mac continues to disappoint.
