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 mark went up by 7 lbs and, although running reasonably well, couldn’t get another win.
She was sent over the 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 length.
The 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 5 lbs 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.
Antonia De Vega kept her Classic dreams alive after she ran out an impressive winner of the Johnnie Lewis Memorial EBF Stakes at Newbury.
