Captivity finished runner-up over a shorter trip here a week ago and should make another bold bid, though third-placed TIME TO DANCE is fancied to reverse running. The latter was having only his second outing on that occasion and should find enough improvement to open his account. Klang Valley was unfancied on her recent debut and ran accordingly and stablemate Munificence could prove a bigger threat on his debut, although Halogen could prove best of the newcomers and is one to keep a close eye on in the betting.
