In depth

Verdict

The market will probably be the best guide for this but Will Biddick’s mount MY DANCE, who is professionally handled, didn’t look short of pace when winning a maiden point two months ago and has a more interesting pedigree than most. A lot of the others are pretty much exposed between the flags but the four-year-old Askphilmor is an exception and James King rides. Taylormade Boy may be the pick of the remainder ahead of Whiskey Baron.
