Clive Cox has his string in good order at present so DUTCH S rates a speculative selection in a tricky getting-out stakes. Juvenile maidens at Haydock Park are generally competitive affairs and the daughter of Dutch Art managed to get off the mark at the first time of asking before floundering on soft ground on her first visit to Newbury. The trainer drew stumps after that performance and, having had time to mature, his filly can reap the benefit. Angelic Air won readily on Kempton's Polytrack last month and John Gosden's filly is sure to popular on her first outing in a handicap. Martyn Meade has already made a splash on his return to the training ranks and any market confidence behind Arranger should be noted while jockey bookings suggest Aertex is the pick of the Richard Hannon team. Leicester winner Token Of Love could be literally anything and may turn out to be exceptionally well treated.
