DOLPHIN VILLAGE returned to form with victory at Thirsk last time. Progressive last season with three wins, there should be more come this year and he can confirm latest running with Tepmokea and Arizona John. A 6lb penalty proved beyond Mister Fizz last time having won at Haydock before that and it was a similar story with Redcar winner Incendo, who was well beaten at Kempton on his latest start. Monsieur Rieussec has yet to win over further than a mile.
