Master Cardor Visa is back in the right grade and had a pipe-opener at Wincanton four weeks ago. He's entitled to be thereabouts while Isola Bella looked sure to win at Stratford two weeks ago when going clear approaching two out. But she weakened before the last and has a further quarter-mile to cover here. DANCING DAFFODIL was a ready winner over fences at Southwell last week off today's mark. Conditions will be quicker here but that shouldn't be a problem and Robin Dickin's mare should double her seasonal tally. Tribal Dance was a fair third at Ffos Las after winning at Bangor but has gone up another pound since.
