Newdane Dancer has a penalty for her latest success at Musselburgh but is in good form and won over 2m here in December. The Weatherman is tumbling down the weights but has yet to show any improvement for it while Douchkirk was well beaten at Sedgefield in January after going close at Fontwell previously. AMIR PASHA has won four times around here over hurdles and on the Flat. He's back in the right grade today so we'll take a chance on a return to form for Micky Hammond's nine-year-old as the well-treated King's Chorister has looked very reluctant lately and Irish import De Chissler was pulled up on his UK debut.
