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.

13/2

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.

12/1

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

28-11OR: 76
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.

3/1

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.

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.
