Captain Bellamy has proved best on the Fibresand at Southwell so far but Not Til Monday has the past form to get involved, although he's returning from a four-month absence. GILDED AGE was having his first start since May when well beaten at Bath earlier this month but scored in soft ground over C&D in April and is only 1lb higher today. Winning hurdler Counting House is unexposed on the Flat and may be thereabouts while Arch Event had Tijori a couple of lengths behind when third at Warwick recently and could figure.
