IT looks like being a quiet week on the betting with with a cold snap likely to disrupt the racing programme. Frost also has a knock-on effect for all-weather backers as the tracks are harrowed deeper.
DAWN DANCER (1.30) could put his Fibresand experience to good use in the opener. Andrew Balding's colt chased home Sir Mark Prescott's useful On The Warpath and has been given a 70-day break. Third horse Desert Wind has scored twice since, so the form is solid enough.
Archie Watson saddles probable favourite Pacific Fleet, so promising in a York maiden last July.
