The Mongoose landed a double last month and went close off today's mark at Chepstow a week ago. He's not out of this but We Have A Dream has struggled since winning a seller at Lingfield. Frognal and Fletcher Christian have slipped down the handicap but Pilates makes more appeal as he looks to follow up after scoring at Bath. GAME ALL ran well on her belated reappearance last month and she gets a speculative vote with more to come over this longer trip.
