Verdict

A few old friends in action, all harbouring not a secret from the handicapper with the exception of a couple of younger contenders. THE DANDY YANK, the only 3-y-o on show and a son of Dandy Man, does all his racing at the minimum trip and his latest outing which brought victory over Vodka Chaser at Leicester this month confirmed his ability to effectively handle quick ground. A 5lb rise for that win seems a fair reaction and he can go in again under apprentice of the moment, Cam Hardie. Joyous would probably have been the choice with a recent run under his belt but these sprinters usually require a race to find the groove and she hasn't been seen since January. The Ivory filly may be worth a saver if the market speaks well of her but she's one to note whatever after just half a dozen starts. Dark Lane remains unfazed by his busy schedule and makes most appeal of the older brigade off bottomweight.
