Dance and Glance showed the benefit of a previous run with an impressive victory from the front in the bumper at Plumpton on Sunday in the colours of the Mere Racing.

I walked the course beforehand just to be sure the ground was on the slow side because conditions can dry up so quickly at this time of year.

We were a tiny bit disappointed by the debut of Dance and Glance in the £100,000 Goffs UK Spring sale bumper at Newbury late in March.

He’d been going well at home and travelled nicely in the race for a long way before fading late on into tenth place.

But he still shaped with plenty of promise, learned plenty, came out of the race in good shape and was able to make all the running at Plumpton without being seriously tested.

The Sainted Canary came out of the pack with a brief challenge but Richie McLernon had kept something in reserve on our horse who kept on powerfully in the closing stages to win by three lengths.

Dance and Glance will soon be going on his summer holidays and when he returns into training he will be starting over hurdles.
