MUTUAL REGARD fits the profile of so many of his stable's winners. Unbeaten since stepping up to middle-distances, he's a winner without a penalty after landing an apprentices race at Lingfield last week and can go in again in this company. Lady Bellatrix also improved for the longer trip when scoring at Lingfield last month and she can figure while Miss Blakeney won't be far away again if a first-time visor has the required effect. Navajo Charm and Cool Sky make most appeal of the remainder.
