Verdict

Tiny Dancer won by 24 lengths over 2m5f at Ayr last time and stays further. He can't be ignored while Radio Nowhere went very close at Newcastle in December. Unfortunately, he then took a backward step at Musselburgh and isn't one to have much faith in. HARRIS is much improved this winter and, after dead-heating over hurdles at this track in December, was second over course and distance last month on his chasing bow despite making mistakes. He'll have learned from that and, 5lb lower now, could be the one to be on as Swingbridge returns from a lengthy absence and Over And Above is 4lb out of the handicap.
