Alan Bailey's Dazzling Valentine has the highest rating of those to have earned one being rated 68 but she is proving to be expensive to follow and is hard to recommend. John Dunlop's High On The Hog looks to be going the right way and showed improved form when a close second behind Ardour at Epsom but that was only a four runner contest and the form may not amount to a great deal and preference is for STANDOUT. Richard Hannon's colt has improved with each outing so far having run second of 15 behind Persian Herald in this grade at Leicester last month and a reproduction of that effort may well suffice. Marcus Tregoning's Blue Vinney is lightly raced after just the one run but needs to improve markedly on that first effort to get involved at the business end.
