Dancin David on track today

Put on your dancing shoes and head to the Garrison Savannah today as Sir David Seale’s 2012 Sandy Lane Barbados Gold Cup winner Dancin David makes his first appearance after romping to victory in the March pattern event.
The Liz Deane-rained horse can further confirmed his status as a future champion and crowd puller once he disposes of his ten opponents in the feature – Kendal Moon Trophy Handicap for horses rated 118-140 over 1 570 metres.
This race has been robbed of some of its interest as the connections of Show Me The Money have elected to keep the animal indoors. The Anderson Ward-trained animal was being asked to spot the Gold Cup winner Dancin David an inconceivable 22 pounds, once again bringing into question the structure being used for the handicapping and framing of races  
Dancin David will once again face Daga, Ring Time, Graeme Hill, Giovedi, Little Man Arran and Indanger all of whom felt the fury of his wind as the Hopefield tornado rushed by on the outside in the muddy conditions. Some are convinced that the soft conditions were the deciding factor.
Today’s conditions should be irrelevant as the son of Omega Code and Miss Madeline will have champion rider Anderson Trotman in the steels. A frightening aspect of the equation was the sight of jockey Trotman perilously perched on his tail as he effortlessly went through his preparation on Saturday morning; a sight that left the posse in the Grand Stand in awe.
Daga was a decent fourth in the Gold Cup, she then was a no factor in the Condominium At Palm Beach Trophy Handicap for horses rated 75-100 over 1 100 metres. Jockey Reshaun Latchman has been in good form and this will only serve to strengthen her chances.
Ring Time, who ran well in the Gold Cup finishing sixth, looks a good outside bet as he has performed fairly well in this company while his rider heads the jockeys’ table.
Graeme Hill found the muddy conditions out of his favour; one can expect an improved performance. Stablemate Little Man Arran is overdue a good performance and would want to spring a surprise. Indanger is another one that did not act on the going on March 3.?He can redeem himself with a lively performance in this company despite the weight.  
Captain Sully trailed down the field in the Tanglewood Stakes and Trophy over 2 000 metres. That was followed by another poor effort in the Condominium At Palm Beach Trophy Handicap. He is one of the few horses that can boast of having beaten Dancin David and on that theory and weight he must stand a remote chance.
Sea Gypsy ran well in the Tanglewood Stakes and Trophy. At the present weight, she could factor but, of course, with her, it’s all about the prevailing conditions. Purr Class was dynamic when going under to Areyoutalkintome.
A repeat of that run might find her a place.
Charge It has not enjoyed his last year in racing and will have to put in a half decent effort before even being considered.
