DESTINY'S DANCER can land the nightcap at the main expense of Captain Cool and Buzz Bird. The selection showed plenty of promise on the turf last season and she broke her duck on the all-weather at Wolverhampton last month when she beat The Bay Bandit. This longer trip should suit and she is taken to open her account on the turf. Captain Cool looks the main danger as he is quickly turned out after chasing home Glen Lass at Windsor on Monday. He wasn't beaten far that day and he has trip and ground to suit here so a bold bid is anticipated. Buzz Bird has twice gone close on the all-weather but her turf form last season was only moderate and she does have a little absence to overcome tonight. French Seventyfive could provide a bit of each-way value in the race as he hinted at ability last season, but he has been off the racecourse since August and he may be sharper for the outing. Clayton Flick has disappointed in weaker races than this recently and he is hard to fancy, so D'urberville could be a better bet for those seeking a bit of value, However, this looks a good opportunity for Destiny's Dancer who gets the vote.
