Verdict

The lightly-raced and progressive CHANCE TO DANCE looks set to gain his third victory in his last four starts after landing the Cork Derby a fortnight ago. Jim Bolger's charge is 6lb higher but will probably end up in pattern race company if maintaining his improvement. Calibrate is stoutly bred so she did well to score over 1m1f last season and Dermot Weld's very lightly-raced filly is one to keep an eye on, especially with Galway not too far off. The stable also run Nonchalant, who makes his handicap debut and is the pick of Pat Smullen. Sean Corby's claim is a bonus for Castle Guest, who has continued to climb the weights this season without winning. Ned's Indian won four times last season yet remains on a reasonable mark though he hasn't been seen since December.
