DASH BACK's form figures don't make good reading but she's been running better than they imply and, as the only C&D winner in the line-up, she can make use of a drop in class and ratings and take this. Pre Tax Profit ran well enough in a handicap over 7f here in May to be sent off favourite at Naas last month but ran poorly. It would be no surprise to see him bounce back while Sassaway has some good form over the C&D and has been racing mainly on soft ground. Angels Art has yet to reach a place in five starts on the surface but has mainly performed with credit and could prove best of the three-year-olds. Luckiest Owners is poorly named as her owners have yet to collect a first prize in 25 starts though she would be a major threat if able to repeat her head defeat by Little Village over the C&D in May.
