A rejuvenated DIXIE'S DREAM arrives in fine form having scored easily at Kempton last month. He can go in again with Ryan Tate negating most of a 6lb rise. True To Form hasn't looked like his old self this winter despite returning to a winning mark and Mia's Boy and Verse of Love are other all-weather regulars struggling at present. But Stasio has found some form this year and should be in the mix once again along with Veeraya. Corporal Maddox scored over 7f here last time but is upped in class off a higher mark for this.
