Hawaiian Dream needs to step up on her three outings to date and whilst closely matched with Oratorio's Joy on previous running, the latter looks to have improved significantly since, notably when making all to break her maiden at Wolverhampton last time. She looks on the upgrade. Jathabah has the assistance of Ryan Moore and Clive Brittain landed a Listed contest over the weekend at Kempton to suggest the yard's runners are fairly well forward. His filly showed much-improved form on her seasonal reappearance after a modest juvenile campaign and should be a contender here. However, LIGHT ROSE looked a filly of some potential when routing her Warwick field on debut last October and this looks an attractive starting point for the new campaign. Mark Johnston's Cape Cross filly is therefore taken to concede weight all round.
