Verdict

Mountain Cat will find life tougher off a higher mark after ending a long losing run at Wolverhampton last month, but Extraterrestrial showed signs of a resurgence when second over a trip short of his best at Doncaster last time. Daring Dream is still 5lb higher than when winning here last July and a chance is taken that Alan Swinbank has DREAM WIN fighting fit for his reappearance. Lightly-raced for his age, he won three times last year and it would be no surprise if he continued on his upward curve this season.
