master-dancer-3Having sustained a career-threatening injury at Taunton in February 2015, it has been quite a long road back for Master Dancer, but he is still only a five year old and it has been a pleasure to see the son of Mastercraftsman really find his form of late, following up his Salisbury win in August with a wide-margin success at Chepstow yesterday.

master-dancerRidden by Mitch Godwin, who is excellent value for his 5lbs claim, he raced exuberantly throughout, as had been the case at Salisbury, but nevertheless had plenty left when produced to lead a quarter of a mile from home and kept on strongly to win by four lengths.

I am hopeful that there is plenty more to come from him on the flat and he may try and record the hat-trick on the level next time, but we will also consider sending him back over hurdles, as he has plenty of potential as a novice hurdler this term.  Congratulations to his owners, Select Racing Club & Colin Davies!
