D'Urberville ended 2010 with a couple of victories over C&D, but hasn't raced since and may need this. Dashing Eddie continued his improvement with a win over 7f here last time and should be thereabouts once again despite a penalty, but COMMUNITY makes more appeal. Phil McEntee's filly took a big step forward when beating Tuesday's winner Ecossaise by over three lengths over C&D last month and she's taken to follow-up on her handicap debut. Master Of Dance has claims on his best form on the turf, while Twice Red is a course winner, but over 6f, and he ran poorly here on his latest start.
