Verdict

Dream Again Boys looks just the sort that Jonjo O'Neill does well with as he remains lightly-raced with the scope for further improvement. However, this is his first outing since the opening day of March and the market may be the best guide to his chances as is often the case with stable inmates in handicap company. The majority of his rivals are not in the best of form at present with ACCORDINGTOSCRIPT the obvious exception. Martin Todhunter's 6-y-o remains open to progress after showing improved form last time when battling home bravely at Newcastle last time, seemingly appreciating the step-up in trip. Henry Brooke takes off a useful 3lb too. Sun Cloud is probably better than the form showed to date and Solis, albeit exposed, has place claims from the depths of the weights.
