Verdict

After scoring twice here early last summer, HILL OF DREAMS shot up to a mark of 78 which was clearly too high. She's gradually dropped to 63 and bounced back in no uncertain terms last week so a 6lb penalty can be shrugged off here. Anjuna Beach was also much too high in the weights and racing over trips too far before gaining a comfortable course and distance victory a couple of weeks ago so a 4lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run. Gabrial's Wawa is another benefiting from a lower mark and also a change of stable as he looked ready to win soon when runner-up here a month ago while Andrew Balding has been in such good form that Sea Soldier shouldn't be dismissed as he's been staying on over 7f at Lingfield and will be carrying a feather weight with his rider's claim taken into account.
