Prime Location has been a short-priced favourite in his last two starts and is now tried in blinkers. Always Bold has stamina in abundance but is probably better with some give in the ground while Sapphire Rouge has been off the course since winning over 2m7f at Fontwell in May and is another who would have liked to have seen some rain. DREAMSOFTHEATRE beat Southway Queen by eight lengths over track and trip last month and followed up at Stratford. A 9lb higher mark means he has to improve again to complete the hat-trick but he obviously gets on well with Maurice Linehan so gets the vote as Milans Well will probably be back over fences in the near future.
