Kyllachy colt who cost 55,000gns as a juvenile; steady but nothing spectacular so far; improvement is possible for the switch to handicapping; moderate draw in stall 12.

Eight-race maiden who wears cheekpieces for the first time; stayed on well inside the final furlong when finishing 2L fourth to I Am Magical at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) on her penultimate start; realistic claims.

Runner up on a couple of occasions as a juvenile, including on debut at Ripon (6f, good to firm); now 10lb lower than when starting off this season and the visor is also applied for the first time.

Has raced mainly over 5f-6f, winning twice over the latter trip on soft ground so connections will no doubt be praying for significant overnight rain; finished eighth of 20 to Look Out Louis at Thirsk (6f) 28 days ago.

Kyllachy filly (inexpensive yearling; £2,000); has had three qualifying runs (all over 7f) in order to achieve an opening handicap mark; handy early when finishing 4L fourth of seven to Material Girl at Thirsk five weeks ago.

Firebreak gelding; off the track for 333 days since finishing a slightly improved 8L third of nine to Theatre Of War at Wolverhampton (7f) last July; needs more on handicap debut; stablemate of Seperable.

Like so many of the Ben Haslam string thrived for the switch to racing on Tapeta at Newcastle, winning back-to-back races there during April (7f-1m); 3lb above his last winning mark.

Five-race maiden who has shown her best form (earlier in her racing career) over 7f on Tapeta at Newcastle; easing in the weights; not an obvious future winner.

Started at big prices on all three of her juvenile starts - twice at this track, including when finishing in midfield over C&D (good) last September; unlikely winner on handicap debut.

Hasn't shown masses of promise (0-5), and it's inconclusive as to exactly what trip this prominent racer requires with his two starts in handicap company coming over 6f and 1m; stablemate of Mac Alley.

Seven-race maiden; by far her best performance came over this C&D (good) last September when finishing a 150/1 third (beaten 11L) to Mot Juste; exposed as moderate since; stablemate of Northern Footsteps.

Six-race maiden with an official rating of just 34, so competes from well out of the handicap proper; cheekpieces now applied; very unappealing stablemate of Supreme Dream.

Betting

Forecast

Desert Lantern (11/4), House Deposit (7/1), Ventura Glory (7/1), Evie Speed (7/1), Blazing Dreams (8/1), Dream Chick (8/1), Dabouk (9/1), Hunterwali (10/1), Mac Ailey (10/1), Separable (12/1), Supreme Dream (12/1), Donnago (25/1), Northern Footsteps (80/1)

Verdict

If this was on Tapeta at Newcastle, the much improved Blazing Dreams would surely rate as difficult to beat. However, with a wide draw (stall 11) and rain forecast on turf, there are enough reasons to be taking on the Ben Haslam-trained runner. Dabouk is a possible improver for David O'Meara now tackling handicaps for the first time, while an easing in the weights coupled with the fitting of a visor could see Mark Johnston's Desert Lantern take a step forward. However, if electing to forgive VENTURA GLORY a poor run at Nottingham, she really ought to prove competitive against these rivals on the strength of her earlier Newmarket fourth (1m) to I Am Magical.
