Quite a good seller with Pilgrim Dancer the youngster of a veteran's get together at the age of five. The C&D winner is perfectly solid at a lowly level and should get involved here but race conditions really do favour ZOMERLUST. John Quinn's ten-year-old landed turf claimers at Hamilton and Ripon last year and went well here behind Dialogue when last seen in October. He also finished in mid-division in between those successes in the Ayr Bronze Cup and is likely to prove too sharp for these rivals if ready to roll after his absence. Course and distance winners, One Way Or Another and Striker Torres, have been running well in better grade too and both look dangerous in an interesting contest for the grade.
