SPA'S DANCER put up a dramatic performance in the Newbury Spring Cup today. He recorded a career best performance by finishing 2nd in this ultra-competitive handicap from a handicap mark of 96. He came from last to very nearly first in a thrilling race, weaving his way through the pack. He showed today that he does not need to be prominent to run to his best, indeed on form this was the best race of his career so far. He is a lovely horse to have in the yard.
