Verdict

DANCE FEVER continues to shape up well, and with this step back up to 1m unlikely to pose a problem, he's taken to double his tally for the season. Hong Kong Harry is a low mileage sort boasting a good strike rate, so he's considered a big threat with a recent run under his belt. Cruyff Turn is proving very likeable and completes the shortlist.

  1. DANCE FEVER (IRE)
  2. HONG KONG HARRY (IRE)
  3. CRUYFF TURN
