Frognal followed up his earlier course and distance win with another victory here last Saturday. He's not easily dismissed off a 3lb higher mark but SOLE DANSER gets another chance. Milton Bradley's sprinter has gone close the last twice and looks capable of winning at this lower level off his current mark. Night Trade posted a better effort at Wolverhampton last time and is a threat but this is tougher than the seller Where's Reiley picked up over 5f here last month. Showboating and Hatta Stream are others with claims if back to their best.
