Spell blessed by Cup weight

Warm Spell, the favourite for Saturday's Tote Gold Trophy, will sneak into the handicap proper thanks to a newly introduced clause in race conditions. Under old rules, he would be still 4lb out of a handicap headed by Moorish on 11st 10lb, but a new clause in Saturday's two-mile handicap hurdle stipulates that if no horse at 12st or above is declared at the overnight stage, the weights will be raised to 12st. That will bring Warm Spell up to the minimum 10st.

Theatre / DANTI-DAN Hampstead Theatre, London

"This is the kind of place," says one of the characters in Danti- Dan, "where if you lost your virginity, someone would find it and bring it home to your mum." But "losing" virginity sounds altogether too inadvertent an activity to describe the determination to dump hers shown by Cactus (Sophie Flannery), the 13-year-old girl whose raging hormones fuel Gina Moxley's often very funny new play.

LETTER:Bilious attacks on 'Modern Review'

From Ms Jane Jakeman

On Tour: David Lee Roth

Preparing for a tour starts with the song-writing. I always consider how something works live long before we ever record it. My approach has always been that it has got to be performable, without studio effects. You should be able to play with borrowed equipment with any song and have an impact. In 1986 there was a lot of vaudeville thrown in and that takes more time to rehearse. The kind of show we're preparing here is much more grass-roots, it's coming full circle to how the great Van Halen started.

Heavy metal fatigue

The Monsters of Rock festival in August at Donington Park, Leicestershire, has been cancelled this year because the promoters cannot attract enough big names.

ROCK / Heavy on the relish: Alice in Chains - Town & Country

ALICE IN Chains are a full-on heavy metal act - they can't be satisfactorily laundered as 'grunge rock' on the strength of a rogue plaid shirt like the opening act, the Screaming Trees, or because they come from near Seattle. Alice in Chains have made their name by rocking hard and heavy. With only two albums in the bag, they've come on magnificently from being the perennially ignored support act playing doomy tunes from Facelift 200 times a year, to being America's latest stadium rock monsters playing doomy tunes from Facelift and the three million-selling album Dirt.
