Dancing Daffodil did well last year while Tribal Dance arrives off then back of a win at Bangor, though is 9lb higher now. Head Hunted and Changing Lanes are capable of figuring on their best form while Catch The Fire was fourth at Newton Abbot after a break, though is still awaiting a first career success. It could be that THE WEE LASS is best after a break and Micheal Nolan knows her well. She her own ideas about the game but this trip should be within her compass and she could represent the value in a modest handicap.
