SAVEMETHELASTDANCE has finished in the first three on all seven starts this year and doesn't appear to be stopping, despite being on the go for some time. Riv is a danger after suddenly hitting his stride on his last three outings, while Gorgeous George will be happier back on the main track and has to be considered.
