Verdict

Time And Times took this last year and appears to be coming to hand for the first time since judged on his latest effort. Bee A Beneficiary was an expensive failure last time, but deserves to win a race soon. She may have to play second fiddle again as she faces DANSE AWAY who dotted up on Tuesday and makes a quick reappearance having hardly needed to exert himself . The handicapper will be hitting him with a lot more than the 6lb penalty he shoulders here and that makes him worthy of the selection with a good amateur booked.
  1. Danse Away
