A winner on the Polytrack here, GRANDMAS DREAM went close on soft ground over C&D a week ago when beaten only a short-head. Jim Best's filly looks capable of going one better on today's faster surface and is preferred to Miss Polly Plum, who won over 6f on this course a fortnight ago and is upped in class. Rocker had Love You Louis behind when sixth at Sandown last time and he looks too high in the weights now, but Make My Dream and Equuleus Pictor have claims if back to their best.
