A very ordinary nursery but there has to be a big question mark hanging over Dance Off's ability to last out this trip as her three runs so far have been over 5f. Getaway Car got off the mark when upped to a mile at Kempton, however, and makes more appeal than Warrant Officer who only won a seller at Yarmouth. Poetic Verse has been placed three times over 7f but Ottauquechee and Knight's Parade haven't shown much so far and previous winners Myzamour and Missing Agent were both well beaten over 1m2f at Bath on Monday. GABRIAL THE BOSS hasn't made much impact in three runs to date in maidens but has his sights lowered here and his breeding suggests he'll improve markedly as he steps up in distance - David Simcock's gelding gets the nod.
