Forecasts

Verdict

The step up to 1½m ought to be in the favour of EVER A DREAM who can make her second handicap start a winning one. Battle Angel caught the eye a bit when running on well for fourth at Cork last time and will be a threat if a wide draw doesn't prove too much of an inconvenience. Miss March likely has a bigger performance in her and could also play a part if seeing out the much longer trip.
