RONS DREAM hasn't been beaten far in either of her two runs to date. She's difficult to oppose in this given three of her four rivals showed little on their respective debuts. Renee Robeson's newcomer Inca Dove should be monitored for market interest, however, as she's a half-sister to the stable's course winner Grassfinch, who was second in this race in 2010.
