Verdict

Dancing Daffodil and Prince Pippin finished one-two here in December over two and a half miles on the soft and look the pair to concentrate on once again. But Dancing Daffodil went on to run a fair fourth behind Jupiter Rex in late December and hasn't been seen since, whereas the latter has been in action on three more occasions, most recently when runner-up to the remarkably well-handicapped Chilbury Hill at this venue. He is weighted to reverse placings with Dancing Daffodil now and receives the vote. A market move for Tamira from the Hobbs team would have to be considered significant but Roseini, a course winner, looks a likelier each-way alternative especially when taking in to account the excellent form of her yard.
