TRIBAL DANCE is hard to get past here. He ran out a 13-length winner at Huntingdon during the week and a conditional taking over the reins negates his 7lb penalty. Ben Case's hurdler beat Tecktal last time and the latter had previously defeated today's rival Twin Bud at Plumpton so the form looks solid enough. Kavegirl drops in class after a third at Uttoxeter, but is returning from over a year's absence and Sulpius makes more appeal on his third over these hurdles last month. Island News does most of his racing at this track but a first time visor will need to bring improvement if he's to figure.
