Annelko and Barton Bounty have both gone close of late and the former had If You Whisper behind when runner-up to the progressive Mutual Regard over C&D last month. White Deer has been running well at this track without looking like winning but could find at least one too good again today in the shape of SIR DYLAN. He returned to winning ways over today's trip at Kempton earlier this month and Ron Harris' charge is taken to defy the obligatory 6lb rise.
