Much more like it on second start for this trainer over 1m2f at Bath (firm) last month when fourth of seven in first-time visor (retained). Capable of getting in the mix here if building on that run.

Breakthrough success at Nottingham last time out over extended-mile, goes from 3lb higher mark but should be suited with this longer trip and on the shortlist.

Still low-mileage and made the frame last time over 1m2f in a handicap at Salisbury. Retains scope for doing better things and one to note.

Winner here in 2016 over similar trip in a weak heat, sent off 100-1 chance on recent reappearance in 1m Chepstow handicap and no threat. Others preferred.

Poor maiden (0-15) whose record is very patchy; faced a stiff test last time (well out of the weights) over 7½f at Chester in June and hard to forecast major turnaround now upped in trip.

Built on Bath effort whne scoring here over C&D 17 days ago, going through the line impressively. Chance that a 3lb rise will prove lenient.

Poor form in maiden/novice company and no improvement on handicap bow at Brighton over a mile last time. Upped in distance with it all to prove.

Joined this yard after finishing second in a Fairyhouse claimer over this trip in May and shaped with some promise since at Windsor, though needs to build on that now.

Betting

Forecast

Whimsical Dream (6/4), Estrela Star (3/1), Shifting Gold (10/3), Buzz Lightyere (7/1), Drumshanbo Destiny (7/1), Cafe Sydney (10/1), Inspirational (16/1), Reshaan (16/1), Molotov (16/1), Margaret J (16/1), Counterfeit (25/1), Premium Pink (33/1), Skylark Lady (50/1), Valentine Mist (66/1)

Verdict

WHIMSICAL DREAM took another step in the right direction with a C&D success last month and, raised 3lb, appears to have been given a solid chance to go in again. Shifting Gold also has a 3lb hike to contend with for a win at Nottingham, while going up in trip, and should go well. Drumshanbo Destiny wasn't without support on turf bow in May and needs monitoring while Estrela Star ranks as a possible improver after a placed run at Salisbury.
