There was little between DARE TO DREAM and Savanna Days when fifth and sixth respectively at Haydock last month, but given Richard Hannon has won all three previous runnings of this contest, the former gets the vote. Hannon's other runner, Damask, has a bit to find on what she's shown so far, but Accustomed and Arsaadi could figure after showing some promise on their debuts over today's trip. The newcomers complicate matters further with Perfect Delight and Na Zdorovie both related to winners and boasting some fancy entries in the coming months.
