Neither of the three-year-olds, Small Fury and Ishi Honest, make much appeal on these terms while Royal Award is best watched at present. Dancheur arrives in form, however, having found more when challenged at Yarmouth last week. Willie Twiston-Davies' claim takes care of most of her penalty. Fanrouge was second over 7f at Brighton last month while Rivas Rhapsody can only improve on her reappearance. Wicked Wench is fairly consistent but SEE CLEARLY has plenty in her favour today, not least Kieren Fallon in the saddle. Only a pound higher than her last winning mark, she gets the nod.
