Hill Of Dreams has gone close a few times since winning her maiden in 2011 and Richard Hughes may conjure up the improvement needed to finally win a handicap. Maz returned to form at Wolverhampton last time and remains on a winning mark raised only 2lb. Fonterutoli beat Automotive at Lingfield in February and the latter is weighted to reverse running, but Bitaphon's all-weather wins have come on the Fibresand at Southwell. CHARLES TYRWHITT hasn't looked like winning since finishing a promising third on his debut at Warwick last April. Lightly-raced, he's the speculative selection on his return to action.
