Only four of the scheduled 13 starters have raced before, and from that quartet we'll side with OUR DREAM QUEEN, in preference to Kingdom Of Light and Isdaar. It's a minimum stakes race for us though with so little form to go on, and the market should be watched closely. Even the four that have raced before are all seeing the track for the second time. Barry Hills' filly was third on debut in a better race at Newbury than this, and her breeding suggests she should be more than capable at this sort of level. Kingdom of Light was second at Pontefract for Howard Johnson, who bought him for ¿100,000 last year. The experience will have done him the world of good. He's got some fancy entries lined up, as has Isdaar, who cost nearly a quarter of a million Guineas last year. He looks to be the pick of the debutants. The betting may provide us with a decent guide, but we'll side with Our Dream Queen.
