Verdict

140-rated hurdler CLIFFS OF DOVER appeared to win a shade cosily off a mark of 71 at Lingfield last time and is expected to complete the hat-trick, despite a further 6lb rise. Cousin Khee has been off the track since finishing runner-up off 2lb lower at Southwell in April and has place possibilities, though The Way You Dance may emerge as the principal threat off a mark only 1lb higher than when third over this C&D latest.

Verdict

CLIFFS OF DOVER has a decent opportunity to get up the hat-trick after two wins back in March over this trip at Lingfield. On an identical surface with not much depth in opposition, he should take all the beating. Graceful Lady has been doing little wrong on turf of late and she is just as capable on synthetics. Rainbow Rising shapes as though this trip will suit.
