DANCE KING has a rating of 80 which is normally high enough to win a maiden at this track. He never looked like catching Paris Rose at Redcar last time but the latter went on to win a handicap and David Lanigan's colt takes on lesser opposition in this. Entrenched went backwards on his latest start having made a promising debut at Wolverhampton and Wolfs Breath has shown little so far. The newcomer My History is worth noting given his stable's good strike rate at this course.
