It was fast ground when SHENA'S DREAM won on her racecourse debut at Pontefract. The form looks nothing special but Ryan Moore's presence suggests improvement is expected and she gets the nod to go in again. Wildomar should have done better at Yarmouth last time but it's too soon to write him off. Shot In The Dark has disappointed since going close at Bath in May, hoever, and Golden Jubilee posted a poor effort when favourite at Chepstow having scored at Windsor before that. Dual Kempton winner Elegant Flight will have come on for her seasonal bow and may get involved.
