Street Dance reverts to hurdles after running out over fences at Kempton last time. He could figure, despite sharing top weight, but would probably prefer faster ground. SURE JOSIE SURE has been taking on decent opposition in recent runs and is now back on the same mark as when winning at Perth in April. David Pipe's mare is worth another chance despite the fact she has to concede 12lb to the less-exposed Mountainous and 23lb to maiden Realisation, who could easily improve a little for the fitting of blinkers. Scorched Son and Timetoring have ability but may again find a couple of these too strong.
