Verdict

Dance Tempo looked in need of the run when third over 2m here earlier in the month. But he stayed on in the closing stages, having got his second wind, and the longer trip can only help. FIRM ORDER's second to Patsy Finnegan over track and trip last time was a fine effort, however, and he may now be ready to open his account over the larger obstacles. Italian Master must be worth a second look making his fencing bow as he's shown promise over hurdles and has already won a point-to-point. The mare Double Silver has ability and also has a squeak but Wayward Glance is probably best watched after a break as he can be a little quirky.
