GOLDREAM finished a creditable third to the progressive Khubala at Leicester a fortnight ago and Luca Cumani's charge can finally get off the mark back in this grade. Supreme Quest looks the biggest threat as she went close at Salisbury last month and is rated 2lb higher than the selection. She's preferred to Citizen Smith, who was third here on his recent debut with Pearl Nation behind. The remainder look to have plenty of improving to do if they're to figure.
