Verdict

The Hannon team seem to have found the key to Royal Challis with the drop to sprinting and another good effort is expected now he's found his niche. DREAM CAST only won a modest Catterick maiden to break his duck but he has looked promising in the past and that win, quite cheekily achieved, could well make him a more confident performer. On a fair mark for his handicap bow, he is just preferred to the Hannon contender. Pal Of The Cat has something to find with Royal Challis on previous running whilst Oscars Journey warrants a mention after a decent reappearance when not beaten far at Bath. He ended last season in good heart with two wins but both came on ground with plenty of cut so any rain will be to his advantage.
