Narborough went close at Nottingham last week and will have his supporters on that form. But he's yet to win in 16 attempts and THE DANDY YANK makes more appeal. The latter landed a double on the all-weather early in the year and the return to faster ground after a couple of decent efforts in testing going will suit. He'll need to reverse last month's running at Goodwood with Gulland Rock, who is 6lb higher than when scoring at Catterick in April. Mr Dandy Man remains out of form despite slipping down the weights and the remaining pair are even harder to fancy.
