DOROTHY'S DANCING carries a penalty for last week's victory over C&D but her recent form is much better than anything today's competition can offer. She scored with a bit in hand last week and Ryan Moore takes over the reins on this occasion. There's little between Sherjawy, Dreams Of Glory and Chjimes on their running at Kempton last month though the latter had Welsh Inlet behind when scoring over 5f here before that. Lesley's Choice tumbled down the weights at the end of last year and looks on a tempting mark now judged on his recent comeback at Southwell when runner-up to First In Command.
