Verdict

Triple Dream scored over C&D last month but is 5lb higher today. He also has a bit to find with Estonia as she beat him at Kempton back in November and re-opposes on better terms. The latter likes to pounce late off a decent pace, however, and she's far from certain to get that here and DESERT STRIKE makes more appeal. He won at Wolverhampton earlier this month when today's apprentice Nora Looby was doing the steering and the partnership can resume winning ways today. Black Baccara is 10lb higher than last month's win at Kempton, but Rylee Mooch may do better back on this surface after three outings on the Fibresand at Southwell.
