Chasing Dreams finished a bit closer at Hamilton last time and can race off the same mark here. Threave continues to improve though both wins came over 5f and he attempts this longer trip for the first time today. GLASTONBERRY recorded a comfortable victory over course and distance last month and a similar effort should see Geoffrey Deacon's mare defy a 5lb rise and go in again. Burren View Lady is now 6lb higher than her win here in August but Climaxfortackle looks to have strong claims off her current mark.
