Forecast

Dance of Heroes (4/1), Ski Lift (9/2), Collaboration (5/1), The Character (6/1), Savant (7/1), All Talk N No Do (11/1), Tucson Arizona (12/1), Cabin Fever (16/1), Green Light (16/1), Laurelita (20/1), Beakers N Num Nums (25/1), Triple Chief (33/1)

Verdict

Dance of Heroes races for the first time since shedding his maiden tag on the Polytrack in March and is probably best watched but Ski Lift arrives off the back of a recent win at Yarmouth while The Character will handle conditions and was third over this trip last time at Chester. Collaboration has rather lost the plot, however, and Tucson Arizona couldn't win a weaker race at Newmarket last month off a lower mark. SAVANT (NAP) looks a typical Sir Michael Stoute improver and he clearly found 1m too short at Kempton earlier this month. He was fourth on soft ground over course and distance on debut and is handicapped to go very close today.
