Verdict

DREAM WILD was still beaten a long way despite finishing second at Yarmouth last time behind the progressive Estiqaama. However, her trainer's outstanding strike rate at this course makes her hard to ignore and she may well improve past Simply Shining. The latter's consistent form at this level means she gets little respite from the handicapper while Polar Chief remains 6lb higher than last season's win at Haydock. Relight My Fire is a regular at the track but has done all his winning over 7f and maiden winner Rainbow Beauty is having her first start of the year.
