PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Winning Feeling didn't disgrace three times in Class Three, including a fourth to Lobo's Legend, after an easy C&D win at this level in October. He must have claims if he can box-seat from gate five. Daily Beauty easily reeled in Jolly Good Heart from midfield for an overdue C&D win after earning minor cheques in six of eight other Valley runs this term. He remains a contender from gate one despite a seven-pound penalty. Mudita wasn't beaten far with an excuse in his debut over this C&D before zipping late to claim second to Classic Posh at huge odds. He should be closer in the run from gate two and will go close. Happy Profit had excuses in his opening two career starts over this C&D before finding only the late burst of Shining On too good following a speed-chasing run on the fence. He remains one for the shortlist. Courageous Dragon has been knocking on the door in his four C&D starts this term, including a neck third to The Anomaly latest, and is a lightweight chance.
