Quick Returner Set To Strike In The North East
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.
