Ryedale Dancer seeks a hat trick but more's needed as previous successes were narrowly achieved in selling grade. VENTURA SANDS and Dr Red Eye finished one-two over Haydock's mile last time and there should be little between the pair once again but the latter is finding winning difficult and Richard Fahey's charge can confirm placings and land the spoils. To The Spring is interesting in first-time blinkers for the Haggas yard and could be on a very workable mark, whilst Icy Blue also looks nicely treated but has shown best form on ground with some give. Save The Bees was enjoying a good and consistent season until delivering a below par effort at York last time and has every chance if putting that disappointment to one side.
