STAR OF DANCE has had two tilts so far and with the value of both formlines looking smart, on an ordinary day, one would be hopeful that Sir Michael Stoute's colt would be up to picking up such a contest sooner rather than later. Parlour Games is a sturdily bred type on debut from the Godolphin yard. His half-brother won over seven furlongs on his introduction so his claims cannot be ignored. The well bred, Man Of God, who is a full brother to 1,000 Guineas winner, Yesterday, chased home Frankel to a respectful distance at Newmarket on introduction. Elysian Heights gave the impression that his debut at Newcastle would not be lost upon him whilst Ryton Runner is one to view with regard to the future.
