Verdict

Dance and Dance could not have been more impressive when sweeping clear of Bridgefield over trip and ground at Doncaster to gain a deserved success. The Godolphin charge should get closer this time at the revised weights but Ed Vaughan's inmate can still overcome his rival. However, he may find life tougher conceding 11lb to TAZAHUM who looks to have been found a strong opportunity by Sir Michael Stoute. He's been comfortably beaten in Listed and Group company this term but if he recaptures the level that saw him run Green Destiny to a length and a half in Group 3 company at the Ebor meeting last year, then he'll be really tough to beat. His subsequent fourth to Ransom Note in the Group 2 Joel Stakes also reads well in the context of this contest.
