      Verdict

      DANCE KING (NAP) hasn't won since scoring over the course and distance last summer but has been running very well and a repeat of his recent second in a big field at York should be good enough for this. Aldeburgh has won three times on an artificial surface but has never reached a place on Turf including under NH Rules. Treasury Notes showed nothing in four starts at Wolverhampton but transferred to David O'Meara and won at Hamilton. He's just the type to improve again over this longer trip and looks a big threat. Arrowzone scored over a mile here in April but has never raced over a trip this far but the consistent Pamushana just failed to last out over 1m4f at Ripon and this is her trip.
