Dancing Rain Epsom debut on cards

by JP Lonergan , 19 February 2012

William Haggas says that the excellent Dancing Rain should run in the Coronation Cup at Epsom in June.

The four-year-old, winner of the Oaks on the same course during a fine Classic campaign, has also tasted the equivalent glory in Germany and won the British Champions Fillies' And Mares' Stakes at Ascot.

And, while the filly’s last start of the year saw her disappoint in the Queen Elizabeth II Commemorative Cup in Japan, Haggas is unconcerned as he targets more success in the summer.

"She's just started cantering and she's in great form,” the handler was quoted as saying by the British Horseracing Authority website.

“She didn't fire in Japan but it was just one of those end of term runs a long way from home. It just didn't happen for her that day. That was the first time she's disappointed us, so she's done us proud really.

"It's hard to say whether she's improved, but she's got to be stronger. They rarely go backwards from three to four, so we'll see.

“We're planning to go to the Coronation Cup on her first start at Epsom. That is the skeleton plan at the moment."
