Quick Returner Set To Strike In The North East

20th May 2019, 17:17 by Gerard Lees

Filly Can Waltz Away With Prize

The Requinto filly DANCING MOUNTAIN started her career in Ireland, and after three moderate runs in maidens to get a mark, promptly won her first handicap in a photo' from the subsequent winner Emily Grace. Her rating went up by 7lb and, although running reasonably well in a couple of subsequent events, she couldn't get another win. The filly then was sent over the Irish Sea to Roger Fell's North Yorkshire stable and, after a couple of poor runs came back to form a week ago with a second to Northern Society, beaten a length.

Significantly, fourth, Fairy Fast, came out and won a Class 3 sprint at Ripon yesterday. Dancing Mountain goes off the same mark of 56 as opposed to the extra 5lb carried by main rival, John Gallagher's TOMAHAWK RIDGE, a winner at Windsor three weeks ago. The latter is top on BTO ratings but his sire, July Cup winner Alhebayeb hasn't had a winner at Redcar from 10 attempts. They can be dutched at 5/2 and 4/1 for a near 100% profit.
