Officer In Command remains in fine form but is up another 5lb for winning a claimer at Kempton last week. Delightful Sleep is upped a grade after her recent win at this track but that form looks stronger in hindsight with the subsequent victory of the runner-up. Standpoint, Bold Cross and Yourinthewill have a chance on recent placed efforts at the course but a chance is taken on TIME TO DANCE. Joseph Tuite's charge ran well for fourth here on his return from a year off the track and Jamie Spencer's presence suggests he's expected to go very close in this.
