Dancing Freddy has been threatening to end a long losing run with a string of placed efforts on this surface. Art Dzeko beat Doctor Hilary here in January but the latter re-opposes on better terms while Prince Of Passion showed signs of a return to form when fourth here last time with Waabel a length behind. Bubbly Bailey scored at Kempton earlier but found one too good off today's higher mark last time. CHAPELLERIE missed the whole of 2013 but should be spot on now after running well for second here last week. It could be the turn of Tony Newcombe's charge today and he gets the nod.
