Henry Candy's stable is struggling for winners at present and Gosbeck's recent form reflects that fact. Look Left is plunged straight into handicaps after winning his maiden at Doncaster and has scope for improvement while Viking Storm went close at Lingfield last month, though is upped in grade again here. Dubai Glory has a penalty to carry for last week's C&D win but shouldn't be far away, and Gottany O's was successful at Chester the last time he competed at this level. But we just prefer ANTON DOLIN, who rattled up a hat-trick in May and June and showed himself capable of scoring again off a higher mark when runner-up at Doncaster last month. Kleitomachos may be best of the rest off bottom weight.
