Verdict

Dawn Commander is now on a career-high mark and has had a short break since winning at Doncaster in March. Kingsmere won well at Cheltenham last month but was then beaten under a penalty at Ludlow and has gone up a further 5lb since. Howizee couldn't justify favouritism at Carlisle and this looks tougher while Wake Your Dreams tries a new trip, though should strip fitter for his run at Haydock. VINNIE MY BOY won a couple of bumpers here in 2012 and bolted up at Ffos Las on his latest start. He's been hammered by the handicapper for that effort but today's quicker ground won't bother him and he could go in again if he's back to his best.
