MASTER OF DANCE is taken to break his maiden tag on the third time of asking at the expense newcomers of Swan Wings and Nosedive. The selection improved from his debut at Ascot to finish fourth at Goodwood last month. He has run green on both outings to date and he should improve once again and if doing so he will not be far away come the business end of the race. Swan Wings has plenty of speed in her breeding being a daughter of Bahamian Bounty. Trainer Andrew Balding has his team of horses in fine form at present so the market will be the best guide to his chances. The same can be said about the other debutant Nosedive who has Ryan Moore booked to ride. He is nicely bred and should be noted for any support in the betting ring, however, Master Of Dance is the form choice and is given preference.
