Verdict

Paul Nicholls' Dreamcatching comes into strong contention, even though he was undeniably disappointing in a much hotter race at Kempton on his stable debut. Preference though is for fellow French recruit FADAS who boasts some useful form, comes from a good family, and is just the type the Skelton team excel with. Whin Park makes most appeal of the remainder. 1. Fadas 2. Dreamcatching 3. Whin Park
