Verdict

Definite Dream beat Wednesday's Wetherby winner Firth Of The Clyde at Chepstow last month and will be fancied to follow up. But a number of these have the past form to figure including the headstrong Wessex King and Highway Code, though the latter is still awaiting a first victory over fences. Speed Master and Massena are unexposed but WINGS OF SMOKE ran well for a long way on his reappearance at Worcester in September and should strip fitter today. The top weight beat Ballywatt by two lengths in this 12 months ago and is 4lb better off today so can stage an encore.
