Verdict

Dark And Dangerous ended a poor run of form with victory at Catterick earlier this month but that was a poor contest and more will be needed here off a 4lb higher mark. Prince Of Dreams is often let down by his jumping but Alwaystheoptimist is back on a winning mark, though hasn't had a run since November. SANDS COVE probably ran his best race since arriving in this country when third to Greywell Boy at Sandown last time. The better going here will suit and he can land this for Charlie Mann with neither Overclear nor Olympian Boy showing much so far this term.
