Verdict

Masked Dance bounced back to form at Ascot last time and remains on a winning mark having been raised only 2lb. Summerinthecity went close on his return at Doncaster with Azrael, Pearl Ice and Marine Commando behind and he could figure in the finish while Barney McGrew has solid claims if fully tuned-up for his reappearance. MON BRAV won this last year when counting Arganil and Amenable among his victims and with a pipe-opener over 7f here under his belt, Brian Ellison's charge is taken to repeat the trick.
