Verdict

DREAM IN THE PARK has shown promise when runner-up on all career starts and can deservedly get his head in front now. Gamaret is the obvious threat after his Exeter second on New Year's Day. Duke of Bronte has been off for a long time but he was very capable on the Flat back in the day and is worth keeping an eye on in the market now hurdling for Dan Skelton.
