DANCOURT can come on top here and he is nominated over Libel Law and The Which Doctor. The selection looks a progressive sort and he won with plenty in hand when he beat Press The Button at Sandown last time out. He proved last time that he sees out this trip and he looks one to stay on the right side of. Libel Law has contested some pretty hot races in his short career and he was only narrowly beaten last time out by Big Bound at Leicester. He drops into handicap company here and he should run a big race. The Which Doctor is interesting as he would have a good chance on the pick of his form, but he has yet to prove himself over this trip and he could be best watched today. The Plaisterer hails from a yard in decent form and although she is a quirky type, she did win well at Doncaster last time and she will handle a bit of cut in the ground. Cheshire Prince has been knocking on the door of late and could prove best of the others, but Dancourt looks to be on an upward curve and he should prove hard to beat.
