Captain Dunne is a reliable sort at this level and finished just behind Duchess Dora and Dinkum Diamond in the Beverley Bullet 11 days ago. Breathless Kiss was also close up but Henry Candy's three-year-old may come out best of that quartet today as he is better drawn now and will be suited by this easier track. Group Therapy finished ahead of Humidor, Breathless Kiss and Stone Of Folca in the King George Stakes at Goodwood but didn't reproduce that form at Tipperary subsequently. Aneedah hasn't really built on a promising juvenile career and finished well behind Anne Of Kiev over 6f at Haydock in May, but the latter may find stable companion MEDICEAN MAN too strong over this trip. The five-year-old has developed into a top-notch handicap sprinter this year and his recent second at Ascot was another fine effort at the weights. He can take this elevation into Listed class in his stride.
