ILLUMINATING DREAM showed signs of inexperience with a tardy start before staying on for third at Doncaster on her debut. The form looks solid enough as she had a subsequent winner back in fifth and David Brown's filly gets the vote with improvement expected. Gratzie has shown enough with a couple of placed efforts to suggest she can figure ahead of the likes of Bajan Beauty, Eleventh Hour and Thurayaat while Capelena may turn out best of the newcomers.
