Verdict

Deauville Dancer may not have finished improving yet and had Big Time Billy back in third when scoring at Chepstow. He bids for a hat-trick off a 5lb higher mark. Riptide has only been upped 3lb for winning at Ffos Las and can figure again but Caledonia has been raised 7lb for winning in soft ground at Musselburgh. Longshadow and Beat The Tide are closely matched on their running over track and trip in June but Precision Strike is worse off with Albonny on today's terms having beaten the latter at Haydock. DR IRV is back on the same mark as when winning last year's renewal and, with Megan Carberry's allowance further helping his cause, he should go close again.
