Verdict

Dressed To Dance, Put It On The Card and Hollywood George are the three to focus on in this competitive opener and the vote is given to Put It On The Card. The selection put in a career best effort to score last time when beating Sweet World and although it will be tough for him to land the hat-trick he is clearly on the upgrade and there may be even more to come. Dressed To Dance won well here last time in the first-time blinkers when beating Not Too Taxing but it remains to be seen whether the blinkers will prove to be as efffective today. Hollywood George ran creditably last time over 1m but that was his first try over that trip and he should be seen in a better light back over 7f. The Light Fandango ran well last time but he has the wide draw today and is taken on and we are happy to stick with Put It On The Card who is put forward to continue his winning streak.
