There's little between Bousatet and Marcus Caesar on recent running over 7f here. The former came out just the best on that occasion but both have something to prove over this longer trip and MEDICI DANCER is preferred. She posted a better effort when third over track and trip last month and makes more appeal than Mandy's Boy, who landed a claimer at Redcar recently. Gabrial The Thug and Callmeakhab could also figure if producing their best.
