29-2OR:
14/1

Has a dirt pedigree on the dam's side and came in for late support when third at Wolverhampton last time. Not disgraced on turf debut either and sire handled testing ground.

Son of George Vancouver purchased for €26,000 at the sales last October. Half-brother to the useful Ming Dynasty. Worth a check in the market for a yard who had a well backed juvenile winner on Tuesday.

Has shown speed on his first two starts but had his limitations exposed last time. In better company this time over 2f further.

8/11

Produced a better effort last time in a first time visor when making the winning favourite knuckle down hard. A similar positive ride under the champion jockey would make her hard to beat in receipt of the fillies allowance.

12,000 gns Champs Elysees filly with speed on the dam's side of the pedigree. Narrowly failed in a slowly run race at Yarmouth two weeks ago and this looks stronger.

Betting

Forecast

Dancing On A Dream (8/11), Elysian Lady (3/1), Al Wafi (11/2), Hurricane Hero (13/2), John Betjeman (12/1), Hackle Setter (14/1)

Verdict

Al Wafi and Hackle Setter both stepped up from their debuts last time but both face a difficult task in conceding weight to DANCING ON A DREAM who has an official rating of 76 earned following a big run at Doncaster when the visor and positive tactics almost paid off. We have seen the champion jockey give some excellent front-running rides to runners from this yard in 2018 and this is expected to be another.
