Dream Maker is getting little respite from the handicapper though he looks in need of it but Bondesire ran well when stepped up to this level at Ripon last time and an apprentice's 5lb claim helps his cause. Noble Deed handled a rise in class less impressively at York last time and is now 10lb higher than his earlier win at Pontefract and NARDIN makes more appeal. Ed Dunlop's filly has been unlucky to come up against some progressive sorts so far this season but a deserved success can come her way in this company judged on her latest placed effort in a Class 2 race at Newmarket.
