Verdict

Ron Hodges does well here with his sprinters and DREAMS OF GLORY looks poised to follow up last week's victory over course and distance. Danny's Muscutt's claim takes care of his penalty and, though a high draw isn't ideal, the top weight should have enough speed to get a good position and strike for home inside the final furlong. Arch Walker returns from a break and usually finds at least one too good but there are possibilities about last month's Wolverhampton winner Nafa, who appears to have the beating of Spic 'n Span on the form book. Molly Jones has place claims again and Irish Girls Spirit could figure if the blinkers have the desired effect.
