pushed along briefly early, soon prominent, pushed along over 2f out, challenged approaching straight, soon on terms, headed from 1f out, no extra and one pace inside final furlong
Limit Long's run in a Curragh Listed contest on his penultimate start put him in the picture though he looked a bit one-paced back over 6f last time. DANCING ON A DREAM became disappointing for Mark Johnston but made a promising start for new connections behind Super Treat at Fairyhouse and the winner completed a double a few days later. Rita Levi was only just beaten under a big weight in a Fairyhouse handicap while Royal Highness caught the eye when staying on late at Tipperary. Mudlahhim looks certain to improve and Tranchee has been gelded since a couple of moderate efforts over a mile.
