LUCAYAN DANCER is the highest rated in this field and has the selection but should face strong challenges from both Keisha Kayleigh and Masterofceremonies. The pick put in an encouraging effort after a break in what's turned out to be a decent looking claimer at Wolverhampton last time and will relish his return to this fast ground having recorded back to back victories on it last summer in similar races. Keisha Kayleigh needs to be respected as she steps down into selling company for the first time sine 2006. Since then she has been solid in handicaps including taking victory in a better race last June, however, the going looks quick enough. Masterofceremonies hasn't quite shown his Irish form since switching to life in the UK but has perhaps been crying out for quick ground on which he broke his maiden. Jane Of Arc has plenty to find on the pick according to the official ratings but took a similar race here last term but would have to improve on recent efforts to beat our selection Lucayan Dancer.
