Swapped hands for €17,000 in December after seemingly losing his way for Andre Fabre in France. Raced mainly with plenty of cut in the ground, the betting market can guide as to expectations on his first start since November.

5/2

Winner of a course maiden (extended 1m2f) last time out, the Zoffany filly has made good progress since being introduced in May. This is her toughest ask but the step up in trip isn't expected to be an issue and a bold effort is expected from her.

Running consistently without winning this season and the handicapper has been very slow to cut him some slack as a result. Likely to run his race but also not surprising if he finds a few too good in the process.

Answered the call well this season and gone up 12lb in the handicap as a result. Tried this trip just once before but didn't appear to quite get home. Highly respected otherwise.

Plenty of experience and not too badly handicapped on the pick of her form. Stamina not an issue for the mare and, given that she acts on any ground, she would be dangerous to underestimate.

Been very consistent since switching to racing on turf and has potential to make further strides. Gets a handy weight-for-age pull and no surprise to see the Elusive Pimpernel filly take a further step forward over this new trip.

Betting

Forecast

Zoffanyia (5/2), Echo Park (3/1), Scoil Naisiunta (7/2), Dancing Doll (4/1), Nanabad (9/1), Chiavari (14/1), Big Bad Sal (25/1)

Verdict

A tough one to call as the likes of Echo Park, Zoffanyia and Scoil Naisiunta are all progressing nicely and merit close scrutiny in the betting. However, it may be worth chancing a small investment in DANCING DOLL putting her proven stamina to the test and gaining what would be a deserved first win on turf. The mare has dropped to a very handy mark and, with ground conditions likely to ideally suit, the mare has plenty going for her a value option in an open fillies handicap.
