This looks a decent contest, despite the defection of London Life. Harry's Dancer won on her debut over course and distance and has been highly tried since, finishing well ahead of subsequent Chester winner Al Ghuwariyah in the Queen Mary at Ascot. Magic Time and Amber Crystal should find a race before the end of the campaign but we're loathe to desert RISE UP LOTUS. Charlie Hills' grey has improved with every run and had the proverbial ton in hand when scoring at Haydock last time.
