Switch to the first time visor paid off when out battling the runner-up at Ffos Las last week. Blinkers now go back on bit more needed under his penalty in a better race.

3lb above his Bath win in May but runs his best races at that venue and his form away from there in the past year leaves him with a little to find.

Broke his duck at this track a year ago and has hit the frame in three subsequent visits here. Probably remains in form having his the front too soon at Epsom on latest so must be respected.

Runner-up on all four trips to this track. Slow starts are still proving a problem and wouldn't want to be giving too much away at the gates in this better company.

Gained his sole success at 1/4 in May last year on only previous visit here. Best run this term when third at Windsor last week in the reapplied cheek pieces and if they work again, he should play a part.

Improved filly since dropped down to this trip and front running and showed good attitude to win at Newmarket last time. 4lb rise for that win is fair enough and may have more to come.

Nine course wins including this race in 2015 and last year when he took this off the same mark. Comes here in lesser form this time around including when well beaten on Wednesday but dangerous to rule out at this optimum trip.

A little better last week and may have more to offer having been lightly raced but hasn't looked like doubling his career tally and others preferred.

Three wins from seven runs here though hasn't beaten a rival in his last three visits to the venue. Best runs have been in sellers and claimers this season so bit to prove at present.

Betting

Forecast

Gold At Midnight (11/4), Dream Catching (7/2), Pour La Victoire (5/1), Big Lachie (6/1), Handytalk (6/1), Doc Sportello (10/1), Tin Hat (12/1), Red Alert (12/1), Michaels Choice (16/1), Upavon (33/1)

Verdict

Tony Carroll targets this festival each year and has already been on the mark this week. He sets a puzzle by saddling four of the field including the track specialist Pour La Victoire but preference is for DREAM CATCHING who also likes it here and is sure to get the pace he likes to aim at. The lightly raced Gold At Midnight should have more to come and will be hard to keep out of the frame.
