Verdict

This looks tight - Flying Bull is a course winner and warrants respect while there is a question mark over whether Phoenix will be effective over this trip. However, SUPREME DANCE sets the benchmark. He is a leading player bidding to get back to winning ways and will be suited by this distance.
