Kim Bailey received a pre-King George VI Chase fillip with a 653- 1 treble at Nottingham yesterday. The trainer, who will be represented in the King George at Sandown tomorrow by Master Oats and Book Of Music, had not saddled a winner for almost a month, but returned to form with Dominie, The Bud Club and Fellow Countryman.
