IAN'S DREAM has easily the best form on show. He finished a close-up third in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Ascot last summer and won't have to run anywhere near that level to land this on his return. Speronella finished closer at Lingfield on his return and Apricot Sky is likely to improve on his comeback effort at Salisbury. The remainder are harder to to fancy unless Bill Of Rights appreciates the drop back from 7f.
