Verdict

Valentino Dancer was left clear on his hurdles bow at Newton Abbot but was a useful sort on the Flat and should improve for the experience. SOME DAY SOON makes more appeal here, however, having shown decent form in better races than this before easily landing the odds in a Fontwell maiden. Blooriedotcom was rated 85 on the Flat and hinted at ability on his first run over hurdles at Ayr but does need more.
