Verdict

Proud Times has been competing reasonably well in novice hurdles and is sent straight into handicap company for his chasing debut. He's probably on a fair mark though he doesn't have the pedigree of a jumper. Quacity appears better over shorter but the trip should suit Saddle Pack, who faded when tackling 3m at Musselburgh on New Year's Day. Mighty Magnus has been beaten a very long way on his last two starts after a good run at Sedgefield in December but WHAT A DREAM looks the one to be on. William Amos' charge produced easily the best performance of his career at Wetherby two weeks ago and as he's only six he has the scope to make further progress.
