Verdict

SHOAL BAY DREAMER made a winning reappearance under Tony Kelly at Hexham last season and is only a pound higher this time around. This is a modest affair and Dianne Sayer's charge may well be good enough again receiving weight all round. Ballycool is proving expensive to follow but Spitfire Ace should improve on his fourth at Hexham as he was placed a couple of times in point-to-points. Accordingtoscript and Tresor De L'Isle are others with a bit of scope.
