Richard Hannon runs Dixie's Dream and Not Bad For A Boy with Richard Hughes picking the latter. Both should go well with preference just for the former who was always travelling like a winner at Brighton. LONG LOST LOVE made all to score over a mile on turf at Lingfield so it's a surprise to see him dropping back in trip. Similar tactics are likely this time and Kieren Fallon can steer him home. Lady Nickandy landed a minor race at Yarmouth and had no chance against two powerful rivals at Doncaster subsequently. First Bid is a plater who has been beaten at very short odds in two sellers since scoring at Yarmouth.
