All three have claims in what is likely to develop into a tactical affair over this testing trip at this stage of the season for juveniles. The choice is DANCE OF FIRE as his Goodwood fourth to Dutch Connection has taken on an altogether different lustre following his conqueror's success in the Group 3 Acomb Stakes at York last week. The second in that Sussex contest has gone on to score since too. Here Now looked below par last time but has every chance on his Haydock debut second, whilst Who' Sthedude was only just chinned late on at Salisbury in a maiden auction contest and cannot be discounted.
