A repeat of Dance Tempo's debut third at Ascot would see him go close here and he may not have stayed 2m5f at Huntingdon on his only subsequent start. But he has to overcome a break and may not be able to beat HIGH STORM, who won over 2m4f at Ffos Las 11 days ago but also has some decent form over this shorter trip including a very close second to Darlan at Cheltenham in December. Islandmagee has been running well in bumpers and should make the frame on his hurdles bow.
