      Verdict

      Bijou Dan is in a rich vein of form and can complete the hat-trick here at the main expense of Dance Sauvage and That Look. The selection has been winning with plenty of give in the ground, but tries to defy a 6lb penalty on a faster surface here. He has won on good to firm, so it should not inconvenience, and his major issue here looks like the trip. However, the faster ground should help him in that respect and with little else in form we will side with him. Topweight Spring Breeze likes to hear his hooves rattle and comes from a yard going well. He stays further than this over hurdles and didn't run badly over this trip on the flat last time. That Look is worth a try here by Don Cantillon. He likes it quick underfoot and there is every chance he will stay, though the yard is not red hot at the moment. Conversely, Chris Thornton's runners are in good nick and Dance Sauvage should be able to uphold Musselburgh form with Spring Breeze and can make the frame. Let It Be probably needs a drop in the weights, and we'll take Bijou Dan once more.
