DANCE AND DANCE is the obvious one here and in the hope that he takes to the surface he gets the nod ahead of Petrenko and Unbelievable Jeff. The selection is improving and went well over this trip at Great Leighs last time when making the frame, though perhaps being produced too late by Jamie Spencer to get in a serious blow. The same jockey is up here and he can learn from that and get the tactics right today. Petrenko is an interesting runner for Richard Fahey and he should be much better for his recent debut. The step up in trip should also suit and he could make the frame. Stewart Parr saddles three runners and Unbelievable Jeff is perhaps the most interesting. Pedigree suggests that he will be at home over this trip and having cost a few quid connections will be hoping to see some immediate promise. Sir Mark Prescott is not noted for debut winners but nonetheless in such an open race Angel Song is respected as she comes from plenty of winning stock and if the market speaks for her then it should be noted. Dance And Dance can step home in front.
