Verdict

Dreamsoftheatre represents a yard sure to secure a host of summer successes and showed his turn was near when a good second to Kilbree Kid at Market Rasen on his latest start. He's sure to be involved but HERONRY was the better hurdler of the pair on official ratings by some way and can land a first chasing success after things went badly for him when pulled up on his only other chase start last autumn. Nicky Henderson will have done plenty of work with the gelding since that unfortunate experience. Mr Satco is an interesting chasing recruit for the McCain team while Barlow and Accordingtojodie could also have a part to play.
