BLISTERING DANCER was beaten a short-head by Paynes Find at Gowran last month but the weights greatly favour him this time and with his low weight he's taken to gain his first success. Paynes Find has won again, at Fairyhouse last week, when Penny Serenade wasn't far behind and likely to get closer. Dorothy Parker ran easily her best race to date behind More Questions at Navan on Saturday and, as that was her first start on fast ground, she looks certain to be in the mix. Newberry Hill ended the last campaign in good form but hasn't got going so far this season unlike How Splendid, who appreciated the faster going at Gowran last time.
