DREAM CATCHER landed a double in soft ground back in July and hasn't been disgraced in higher grade handicaps than this in three subsequent starts. It could be his turn again today. Mother Jones should run her usual game race with Richard Hughes back on board and Represent was only beaten a head by Gull Rock, who runs in the previous race, at Leicester on her latest start. Ryedale Dancer took advantage of a much lower all-weather mark to score at Wolverhampton on Thursday but will find this tougher while Divine Call scored over C&D on faster going in August but never figured back here last time.
