Contributer showed signs of ability when sixth in a better maiden at Newmarlet back in July but DOLPHIN VILLAGE has the more recent form. Richard Fahey's colt went close at Musselburgh last month and further progress is expected. Ersaal, Chevalgris and Sam Spade are other likely improvers with the latter making most appeal while any positive moves in the betting for either Thouwra and Venue could prove significant. The latter in particular should be noted as he can count Group winners Multiplex and Memorise among his winning relatives.
