FUJIN DANCER was returning from a long absence when a fine third at Wetherby. He's been raised 3lb since but 7lb claimer Harriet Bethell gets on well with the gelding and he represents a stable in excellent form. Marley Roca is probably best watched running over hurdles for the first time since 2010 but Renoyr has done well since arriving from Ireland and won't have any problem with this quicker ground. He makes more appeal than Uttoxeter winner Super Collider at the weights. Tidal Way may be a shade high in the weights now but Carlton Jack probably has more to come and should be thereabouts.
