Chant has been thereabouts of late but would prefer faster going and the same comment applies to recent Leicester runner-up Saint Thomas. Choisan has a shout off his current mark but Qibtee and Miss Tree look high enough in the ratings. GOT TO DREAM has yet to win but looks fairly handicapped on her form in Ireland for Kevin Prendergast. She can make a winning start for new connections now representing Mark Johnston, who has trained the winner of the last two renewals.
