"...she should prove hard to beat here in what doesn't look the strongest affair..."

Timeform on Rock A Roll Dancer

#11 Greener Pastures - Vaal R1 (12:00 BST)

Greener Pastures made a promising debut when third at Turffontein last time and normal improvement will see her get off the mark here. Cosmis Mist was disappointing last time, but her third place finish over this C&D the time before sets the standard here, and she is feared most.

#6 Rock A Roll Dancer - Vaal R4 (13:45 BST)

Rock A Roll Dancer has made a promising start to her career, finishing runner-up on both occasions, and she should prove hard to beat here in what doesn't look the strongest affair. Dashuri wasn't at her best last time but could prove the biggest danger if back to her best.

#5 Strawberry Pavlova - Vaal R6 (15:00 BST)

Strawberry Pavlova got off the mark for the year when winning a mile handicap here last month, and has held her form well in two starts since. The step back up in trip here will suit and she can prove too strong for Daffiq, who is having his first start for a new yard.
