Master Dancer didn't improve on his Epsom debut at Brighton next time and a few of his rivals appear to have a bit more scope. Be Seeing You, fourth at Newbury after being slowly away, is certainly one and goes on the short-list as he has the beating of the more-exposed Jersey Royal and is from a yard in cracking form. But HONOR BOUND was very much in need of the run when only beating one home at Goodwood. She has a nice pedigree so gets a tentative vote to get off the mark here, though With A Twist is another likely improver. Solid Justice is by Rock Of Gibraltar and a half-brother to a two-year-old 7f winner and looks the pick of the newcomers.
