CREEK HARBOUR won a seller at Lingfield in June and a handicap at Chelmsford last month. He has every chance on these terms and and arrives in better form than George Dryden. The latter is weighted to go close if at his best and is preferred to Kwela and Dream Catching, who both drop back down in distance, but Swiss Pride won at Wolverhampton the last time he competed in a claimer and can figure again. Majorette looks up against it on today’s terms.
