RAIL DANCER followed a success over 1m4f at Wolverhampton with victory over 1m2f at Yarmouth. He’s 6lb higher over this intermediate distance but won with a bit to spare last time and should make another bold bid. Gas Monkey also won at Yarmouth last time. That was back in April but an apprentice’s allowance negates a 5lb rise. Wolverhampton regular Raven’s Raft has recorded both wins so far at the latter track, however. Champs De Reves has been thereabouts at Bath recently and Love And Be Loved found only one too good at Chepstow and can race off the same mark. Broad Appeal won at Leicester before beaten in a lower grade at Windsor and Barca went close at Kempton but is still looking for his first success.
