You Look So Good was having her first start since May when third at Kempton last month. Dropping back a furlong today, she should be in the mix again but a chance is taken on DARING DRAGON. The latter finished runner-up at Lingfield at the end of last season and won't have to improve much on that to figure on his belated return to action. Artistical is preferred to the more exposed Messageinabottle on only his third start.
