Patience has ran out with the frustrating Net Whizz even though the form book gives him every chance in this. Shamdarley is proving hard to win with so a 5lb rise for finishing second at Windsor seems a bit harsh while Toga Tiger couldn't cope with a 6lb rise at Ascot in May, albeit in better company than this. HILL OF DREAMS has a 10lb hike to contend with but he returned an easy five-length winner over track and trip last time and Dean Ivory's charge may have one more victory in him before the handicapper catches up. Silverheels has claims at this level but has so far proved best over 7f.
