Placed on each of his last three starts including over 7f at York (good-to-soft) last time out. Drop in trip unlikely to inconvenience and a leading contender once more.

Unraced colt by French Fifteen purchased for 65,000 gns at the breeze-up sales in April. Worth a check in the market on debut.

9/4

Placed on both starts to date most recently when second over 5f at Thirsk (good-to-soft) just over two weeks ago. Likely to appreciate this step up in distance.

Unraced son of Battle Of Marengo bought for €22,000 at the sales last September. Half-brother to winner Ace Of Aces and market support would be interesting on debut.

Unraced son of Dandy Man fetched €30,000 at the sales as a yearling. Dam won over 7f and top jumps yard have had success with their juveniles in this sphere in the past.

6/1

Fair form in two starts so far. Beaten 5½L into fifth over 6f at Newcastle last time out and likely more needed if he's to break his maiden on this occasion.

Betting

Forecast

Absolute Dream (6/4), Dream of Honour (9/4), Fuente (5/1), Kolossus (6/1), Fancy Footings (10/1), Captain Combat (10/1), Grey Appeal (14/1), Euro Implosion (16/1), Gates Of Horn (16/1)

Verdict

ABSOLUTE DREAM can record a first victory at the fifth time of asking in this competitive looking novice event. The selection has been running well in defeat and can see off the penalised Fuente who was a winner here last time out. Third place can go the way of Dream of Honour who can take third on his first attempt at this distance.
