Verdict

DAYDREAMER has gone up 11lb for his facile victory on Polytrack at Lingfield on Saturday so it's hardly a surprise to see him turned out under a penalty and a quick double looks on the cards. Bella Varenna made a successful handicap debut on the same track and is progressing nicely so a 4lb rise shouldn't prevent another good run while Statesminister also made a winning handicap debut at Bath, where she had the favourite Bishop Wulstan a couple of lengths behind, and she should win more races. Indira stepped up to this trip for the first time at Catterick and showed improvement though this is tougher.
