BULL BAY won his maiden over course and distance last month and went very close in a Lingfield handicap off today's mark last time. He can confirm running with Foot Tapper and return to winning ways. Baby Dottie failed to land the odds at Lingfield on Tuesday but should be in the firing-line again and Swendab has a shout off his current mark. The handicapper looks to have caught up with Pharoh Jake but Mack's Sister is not easily dismissed back over 6f.
