Verdict

DANCING ART ran well for a long way at Uttoxeter on his return from a year's absence. A dual winner over these fences, Keith Reveley's charge looks up to landing this with that run under his belt. Cloverhill Lad returned to action with a victory at Hexham last month but has disappointed in a couple of subsequent starts. Dotties Dilema makes more appeal as he ran well for third at the same track on his chasing bow and may well improve past Rupert Bear, who has slipped down the weights without showing any benefit so far.
