There are now serious doubts if Ian's Dream can run anywhere near his official mark of 95 as he failed to land the odds once again in what should have been a formality at Doncaster. It could pay to take him on with CELESTIAL RAY as the latter is expected to improve on this surface after a debut second on the Fibresand at Southwell. Sir Mark Prescott's colt can confirm running with Tee It Up Tommo and gets the nod. Lebresem has plenty to find but the booking of Richard Hughes for Josefa Goya takes the eye and she's worth noting on her debut.
