BetRef Tip

Dutch Connection
James Doyle & C Hills

5/2

Handicap: No

Going: Good to Firm

Flight Risk looked an unlucky loser here earlier this month and had previously looked highly progressive for Jim Bolger, while Dutch Connection should relish this drop back to seven furlongs after failing to get home over a mile in the Queen Anne at Ascot. Stormy Antarctic disappointingly failed to land a Windsor Listed race last time, so perhaps this can go the way of SPIRIT OF VALOR, who ran a career-best second in the Jersey last month for leading connections.
