KIMS DREAM attracted some support before her run over an extended mile at Killarney and duly obliged, coming with a late run to peg back Days Ahead close home. The runner-up has since scored comfortably at Galway so a 4lbs rise looks lenient for Austin Leahy's filly. Ladytown landed a C&D handicap in June but was firmly put in her place on a return visit by The Silver Crown, who didn't run at all badly behind Smart Striking over 7f at Galway. Michael Mulvany's charge has a real chance though he's just held by Snap Alam on an earlier running over the track and trip and the latter should also take care of Prince Jock, who was behind him at Galway last time.
