DREAMS JEWEL comes into this race in fine form and is taken to gain victory at the expense of Waarid and Toss The Caber. The selection won at Exeter last month off a mark of 90. He ran a decent second to Safari Journey thereafter who went on to win again shortly afterwards. He is now four pounds higher as a result but we feel there is still more to come. Waarid caught the eye when finishing third to No Supper at Warwick last time out. He has yet to get his head in front but is still only lightly raced and could still improve with experience. Toss The Caber has top weight to deal with however, he has run some fine races of late off his current mark. He was a good second at Sedgefield before running into third place at Uttoxeter last time out and can once again enter the frame. A competitive handicap in which Dreams Jewel is given the vote.
