Verdict

MAGIC DANCER was a useful horse on the Flat in 2015, a year in which he finished runner-up in Listed company at Lingfield and contested a Group 2 contest at Royal Ascot. The selection hasn't faired as well so far over hurdles but has placed on each of his last five outings including off a 1lb lower mark at Wetherby last time out. Underfoot conditions aren't certain to suit Celestial Magic but he remains in good form following two wins in his last three appearances on the racecourse and he can claim second ahead of Clondaw Shane who's best effort so far under rules came on good ground back in November. Cillian's Well and Diamond Fort are others worthy of considering in what looks a competitive contest.
