Verdict

Andrew Balding won this valuable sales race last year with a newcomer so a market move for 95,000gns yearling Dance With Me could prove significant. Jubilance bounced back to winning ways at Kempton last time and may still be improving, while Tidentime puts his unbeaten record on the line after wins here and on the Polytrack. Alkazim has only found one too good in all three starts in Ireland and should be winning soon, while Perfect Delight has also been knocking on the door. Mehdi had Balty Boys, Chapter Seven and Orders From Rome behind when winning another of these over 6f here last month and didn't get the run of race at Doncaster nine days ago. But he proved no match for Salisbury Listed winner COUPE DE VILLE here in June and is only a couple of pounds better off now. The latter can complete a quick double for the Hannon yard as he should see out this trip better than stable companion Tell Dad.
