Jonjo O'Neill's horses have carried all before them over the past week and whilst a series of wide margin defeats would be enough to put most punters off - we will put forward DREAMSOFTHEATRE in the hope that the step up in trip enables him to realise some of the potential he'd shown in point-to-points. Changing Lanes is better known over fences though he did win a hurdle at Southwell last year. Millie O'brien provided something of an upset when tried in a seller in May, and having bred the mare, Richard Johnson will be keen to get his hands on as big a percentage of the pot as is possible. No Woman No Cry won over an extended trip as a novice but Colin Tizzard's eight-year-old has been out of form. The Wee Midget is a regular in low grade staying events and Arthur Whiting's charge is back over hurdles having cut little ice over fences at Worcester.
