Dundee is gradually getting there but the handicapper has raised him 5lb since his second at Newbury. Many Stars won easily at Huntingdon but none of those behind have franked the form and the handicapper has taken no chances. Lieutenant Miller has spurned easier chances but Forward Flight could find further improvement stepping up again in distance and See Double You has been in good form over fences. Finaghy Ayr beat Bescot Springs over course and distance five weeks ago and is actually 4lb better off today. MASTERLEADERMAN ran green again when only fourth at Newcastle last time but still has scope and should be capable of a bold showing in this as Vivaldi Collonges has been disappointing so far.
