Plenty of these arrive in very good shape including Captain Bellamy, who landed a Southwell handicap in good style and is at the right end of the weights. Dubai Glory just does enough in front which is why the handicapper hasn't been too harsh on her and though up another 5lb for completing her hat-trick at Salisbury she may not be finished yet. Anton Dolin is a typical John Dunlop improver who looks certain to take some beating after completing a double at Goodwood though an 8lb rise could just hand the initiative to FOUR NATIONS. Amanda Perrett's charge returned to action in a 1m2f handicap at Goodwood in April and produced a powerful late burst to snatch the spoils from Star Commander. The longer trip will be in his favour and he is taken to complete a double.
