‘Let’s Dance’ Nursery Handicap (Jockey Club Grassroots Nursery Qualifier)

Surface: Turf

Weather: Partly cloudy

Form: 8532 BF

Last run: 12 days

W: 9st 9lb

OR: 75

Form & Verdict
Went close at Nottingham (5f, good) but then failed to justify favouritism in a four-runner nursery at Pontefract, albeit behind an unexposed winner and over 6f; certainly needs respecting.

Form & Verdict
Bred for sprinting; placed here and at Windsor before flying too high in the Super Sprint at Newbury; there's reason to believe this mark is very realistic.

2 yo Filly

Form & Verdict
Her Carlisle second (5f, good to firm) reads well and it was always going to be tough in the Super Sprint, as her odds of 25-1 implied; that penultimate effort entitles her to go well off this mark.

Form & Verdict
Best run was second time out when runner-up at Chepstow (5f, good to firm) in May; modest first effort after being gelded at Windsor a month ago and now goes into nurseries with a bit to prove; hood a first.
