Verdict
DANCE OF TIME races under rules for the first time since April 2015, but this Helena Reveley trained eleven-year-old has since become a prolific scorer in point-to-points (7 from 9). He walked over in the mud at Hexham recently, but today's forecast quicker ground (and opposition) shouldn't be overly concerning. Ridden by the very capable John Dawson, he's preferred to the Sedgefield trio of Shantou Prince, Eco Warrior and Summoned.
  1. Dance Of Time
  2. Shantou Prince
  3. Eco Warrior
