Verdict

DANCING JEST who is a course and distance winner is our pick in this race, with Beauchamp Xiara and King's Icon likely to play a major part in the race. Dancing Jest won at Lingfield by two lengths ahead of Rocky's Pride. The form here has been franked as Rocky's Pride has gone on to score subsequently and Dancing Jest could perform well again here. Dancing Jest won at Leicester last year and Martin Dwyer may be on board another winner here. Beauchamp Xiara who's trainer Henry Candy has had some interesting winners so far this year, may have found the right handicap for his filly here. She should make some progress for her experience in five outings. Kyle of Bute and Smirfy's Silver are course and distance winners and should be regarded in this light. It is worth checking the market for these two and it may be possible to find some value. King's Icon has had some reasonably consistent outings but a recent run over two miles at Market Rasen may have bolstered stamina. However, we tentatively go for Dancing Jest in this contest.
