Bondi Mist can be given a chance back over a longer trip and Minty Fox won't have to improve that much on her comeback fifth at Goodwood to get involved. But the betting suggested DUMBFOUNDED was expected to come good at Ffos Las on his latest start. As it it turned out, he found one too good on that occasion but Lady Herries' charge is taken to make amends in this. Grayswood has a shout dropped in class while course and distance winner See And Be Seen can be forgiven a poor latest effort in much better company at Catterick.
