Verdict

A tricky opener as most of these have some sort of chance on their best form. We'll stick with DREAM AGAIN BOYS, who is on a hat-trick after wins at Ffos Las and Warwick. He's suffered an inevitable rise up the weights and both of those victories were on heavy ground but he won on good to soft last season and may still be improving. Water Garden is one of those who are potentially well treated while veteran Kayf Aramis is still capable of a bold showing. Ballytober was no match for O'Faolains Boy in a novice event at Bangor last time, however, while The Romford Pele may be better over 2m4f. Monetary Fund weakened two out here last time and may be too high in the weights now.
