Verdict

Plenty with claims in a wide-open contest but it could pay to concentrate on the less exposed three-year-olds. Rosselli got off the mark in a maiden at Hamilton last month and there should be more to come from him in handicaps but LIVIA'S DREAM returned to action with a victory at Windsor and that looks superior form. Ed Walker's filly beat subsequent winner Bernisdale on that occasion and is taken to follow-up with further progress likely. Dangers abound with the likes of Watts Up Son a leading contender along with Regal Swain, who finished ahead of Desert Vision at York last time and Skyfire, who had Dazzling Valentine well behind when runner-up over C&D recently. Cosmic Moon is another with claims.
