FEEL LIKE DANCING finished last of four in the Chester Vase earlier this month but this is less competitive. John Gosden's colt should be more at home in this company and is preferred to the hat-trick-seeking Red Runaway, who scored at Chester last time but is closely matched with Van Percy on that running. Rundell made a bold bid on his handicap debut at York last week and makes more appeal than recent maiden winner Flashheart. But both should be thereabouts ahead of the more exposed pair Blue Wave and Naru.
