BUNCE, Mujrayaat and Swiss Dream catch the eye here, with Bunce holding the best form credentials. Swiss Dream was made favourite for her debut at Windsor , but she used up too much energy after a slow start and after leading, faded to finish out of the frame. She may be better than that, and can go well with that experience under her belt. With the newcomers not looking particularly noteworthy on paper, Mujrayaat may be worth a look. He too was sent off a well backed favourite in a small field, but was outpaced close home, finishing second. He will be sharper today. Bunce has run with credit on both starts to date, running in a good Leicester contest on debut and then finishing ahead of a smart type when runner-up at Doncaster. The third that day subsequently chased up National Stakes winner Dinkum Diamond so the form looks smart enough for Bunce to make it third time lucky.
