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.
