Lord Of The Dance and Refreshestheparts scored over a mile last month but both disappointed on their latest outings and Dream Win has failed to figure in a couple of starts since scoring over C&D. RESPLENDENT ALPHA went close in claimer here last week and this is not much better. Jamie Osborne's charge can usually be relied on to run his race and today's apprentice has partnered him to three wins in the past so he gets the vote with Aragorn Rouge looking best of the remainder.
