Verdict

Dark Lane is back on a winning mark and was beaten only a head in soft ground at Ffos Las last week but multiple course and distance winner Dreams Of Glory looks high enough in the weights now. Powerful Wind beat Baby Queen over the slightly shorter trip here in June but remains 6lb higher and HOWYADOINGNOTSOBAD makes more appeal. He began this season on a 6lb higher mark and dropping down a grade for this, it could be his turn again today.
