In depth

Verdict

Lindsay's Dream has winning form on soft ground but has become difficult to predict. SCHOLASTICA, another course and distance winner, wasn't beaten far in a Listed race at Haydock in December and looks a safer proposition despite giving away lumps of weight. Dirty Deal should improve for her run at Leicester but that was only a seller and Phase Shift is proving hard to win with. Dark Spirit has never encountered soft ground before but Miss Conduct showed a liking for the surface when upsetting the odds at Catterick last time and the four-year-old may be the danger to the top weight.
