Timeform on Principal Dancer

#6 Principal Dancer - Saratoga R3 (19:20)

A much-improved third here last time, Principal Dancer will be hard to beat in this similar contest and looks to have a leading chance. Rejected Again should give a good account too. Our American Star is another not dismissed lightly.

#9 Rocket Heat - Saratoga R7 (21:40)

Rocket Heat was posting some good figures when last seen at Gulfstream in December and has to be considered on his first start for a new trainer, despite the long layoff. Sayyaaf clocked one of the best times in a workout a few days ago and ought to go close as well, while Ghoul also demands a closer look.

#6 Beyond Brown - Saratoga R10 (23:18)

Beyond Brown was runner-up on dirt on his first try at maiden claiming level last time out and now switches back to turf, a surface he's displayed his best form on. Cainudothetwist beat the remainder hands when second on debut last month and is likely to be on the premises as well. Little Red Button is another to take into account.
