Dursey Island was disappointing back in this grade at Newbury last time. Hanno was beaten at odds-on at Leicester, though may not have been suited by the soft ground. Soviet Courage was second on the Polytrack in October but hasn't been seen since. DREAMING BEAUTY is a half-sister to a filly that won over 7f on her racecourse debut in 2012. She's not highly tried on her introduction and can make a winning start. Artistic Muse was very green at Windsor last month and may need more time.
