DASHING DUCHESS hasn't had much experience and she failed to fire when sent over hurdles. She's reverted to the Flat in very good form and though 8lb higher can follow up her victory here three weeks ago. Daytime Dreamer started favourite for that race but never really got involved while Unique Style is another failed hurdler and though he has some decent form on Turf he's yet to sparkle on this surface and is still a maiden. Saint By Day won over track and trip in September but has been struggling at the weights subsequently and Buccaneer Bob looks more of a threat after a very good run behind Waterloo Sunset a fortnight ago.
