Timeform on Dancing Sword

#5 Bold Respect - Kenilworth R7 (14:20 GMT)

Bold Respect's form is hard to fault at this level and a repeat of his latest performance, when a short-head second in a Grade One at this venue earlier this month, should be enough to see him get back to winning ways. Chimichuri Run finished just under two lengths behind the selection last time in what was a below par effort for him, so he strikes as the obvious danger if back to his best.

#2 King Of Gems - Kenilworth R8 (14:55 GMT)

King Of Gems landed a Grade Two around here in November and, though he was a little below par stepped up in grade again next time, he bounced back to form with a very good third at this course last month. A repeat of that effort is likely to see him regain the winning thread here, so he gets the vote ahead of Paterre and Silver Host, both of whom are recent winners at this venue.

#9 Dancing Sword - Kenilworth R9 (15:30 GMT)

Dancing Sword never really looked like contesting on her debut, but the form of that race has since proved very strong, with the first two home subsequent winners, and the following five all hitting the frame on their next outing. She did her bit for the form when showing much improvement to finish third at this course last month, and sets a good standard in this contest on the back of that. Silver Tiara remains a maiden after eight runs but hasn't been too far away on any of those occasions, so she looks the pick of the remainder, while Northwest Passage also has solid place claims.
