Shades Of Grey and Moment In Time ended last year looking high enough in the weights but Destiny Of Dreams finished a respectable third on her reappearance on the Polytrack and can figure again. Boonga Roogeta is 11lb higher than her latest win in November and course and distance winner Play Street makes more appeal on her return, though Astra Hall looks up to scoring off her current mark this term. RUNNING DEER is a rare runner at the track for Sir Henry Cecil. She must have been showing something at home having raced just the once last year when third at Lingfield and she gets the nod.
