BEAT THE BELL was beaten less than a length in a claimer at Wolverhampton last time against higher rated rivals than he meets here. He looks set for a return to winning ways on that form. Picansort looks high enough in the weights back on the Polytrack judged on his earlier placed efforts and Dorothy's Dancing has a five-month absence to overcome. Both Ginger Ted and Running Mate posted better efforts when second on their latest starts but Commandingpresence looks a bigger threat if taking his chance having been engaged to run at Windsor yesterday.
