Owned by Cheveley Park Stud, Dance Band is a beautifully bred filly from the family of our top miler Belardo so this win was all important for her broodmare prospects. 

She was always well positioned under Harry Bentley and relaxed into a good rhythm on the heels of the leaders. He asked her to quicken with two furlongs to run and she picked up nicely to strike the front with 100 yards to go, going on to win by half a length.

Roger said: "She has improved with each run and I am pleased that she has got her head in front. It wasn't a strong race but hopefully she can go on from here."
