SUNRISE DANCE got off the mark at the 17th time of asking over 5f here last time. She doesn't look an obvious type to follow-up but has gone close off much higher marks in the past and gets the vote. Amethyst Dawn has claims on her C&D win in October but hasn't raced since and Colourbearer has been thereabouts of late though has been back on a winning mark for some time now. Holy Angel had Greenhead High and Master Of Disguise behind when runner-up here and that looks strong enough form to get involved in this.
