    In depth


    Bill Bennett bounced back to winning ways at Windsor last week and can defy the handicapper again, but Dunlea Dancer and Habitual dancer will be big dangers. The selection was in terrific form in the spring winning two handicaps at Warwick, and after two disappointing efforts, admittedly in better company, he returned to winning ways in no uncertain terms beating Michael Stoute's Blaze Of Colour by a comfortable margin, if in the same mood he will be a tough nut to crack. Dunlea Dancer has improved with each outing this season, culminating in a recent second behind Merrymaker at Ayr, another bold showing is expected. Habitual Dancer landed a modest contest at Southwell before finishing runner up to Considine in a better race at Pontefract and can also make his presence felt. Gold Card is another to consider in a tricky little event, but in this mood, Bill Bennett should be followed.
