TOP DOLLAR made a very promising start over 7f at Kempton, keeping on in the closing stages. The extra furlong looks certain to suit and James Tate's filly can improve past Eddiemaurice. The latter is gradually improving but has proved a shade one-paced so far. Our Duchess improved on her first run when second over 6f at Salisbury but has her stamina to prove and none of the remainder looked like ready-made winners last time.
