The 7lb claim of Adam Kirby aboard Revien could be decisive and he gets the nod over Celadon, while Soul Dance was an eye-catcher on her only start so far and she is definitely worth monitoring in the betting. The last named was unraced as a juvenile and makes limited appeal on pedigree. However, she got within a length of a 63-rated horse on debut and need only run up to that level to figure strongly in this company. Celadon was slowly away on his reappearance and could not muster the speed to close down the winner when they came towards the line. However, the run will have done him good and he too will be hard to keep out of the frame if he is a little sharper from the stalls. However, Revien has some useful form to his name at this sort of level and, with the three-year-old's allowance making his task a lot easier, he has a cracking opportunity to open his account today. Especially when his rider's claim is added into the equation.
