With only the single victory on turf, multiple all-weather winner DANCING WELCOME can race off a much lower mark on this surface and so nearly took advantage last Friday when beaten only a head at Bath. This looks no tougher and she gets another chance as her recent Polytrack form is superior to that of Anjomarba, Caramelita and Blueberry Fizz. October's Yarmouth winner Dixie Gwalia makes her return off a 5lb higher mark but still looks a threat as she acts in soft ground as does Pose, who has claims on September's close-up third at Ffos Las on similar going.
