Made a winning debut for this stable when triumphant over 3m at Cheltenham (soft) last month. Every chance when falling at the last over the same C&D subsequently and is a leading contender off a mark 13lb higher than for his latest success.

Raced over fences last season and was returning from a short break when finishing a well beaten tenth on his hurdling return at Warwick (3m1f, soft) recently. More needed as he seeks a first success in handicap company.

Dual hurdles winner but struggled over an extended 2m7f at Sandown (heavy) when making his seasonal debut last month. Others appear to hold stronger claims in this event.

Betting

Forecast

Phoenix Way (4/1), Doctor Duffy (11/2), Dorking Boy (6/1), Anytime Will Do (7/1), Goodbye Dancer (7/1), Taj Badalandabad (8/1), Palmers Hill (10/1), Captain Tommy (14/1), Kansas City Chief (16/1), White Moon (20/1), Who's My Jockey (20/1), Printing Dollars (25/1), Shanwalla (33/1), Label Des Obeaux (33/1), Eur Gone West (33/1)

Verdict

GOODBYE DANCER has been in good form in recent times and he can put a fall last time out behind him to register a victory in this Pertemps qualifier. The selection impressed in winning his penultimate start and he can get the better of Taj Badalandabad who was victorious off a higher mark in this contest 12 months ago. Third place can go to Dorking Boy who is tackling this distance for the first time having won his two most recent starts.
  1. Goodbye Dancer
  2. Taj Badalandabad
