Clear Praise won a lower grade sprint on fast ground over track and trip last time but it was soft going when Pettochside popped-up at Chepstow recently. Dreams Of Glory won over 5f here earlier in the month and finished just behind runner-up Jay Bee Blue at Bath last time. Daylight won his maiden at Bath but has only raced on a fast surface so far and NOVERRE TO GO is preferred. The latter is back on the same mark as when scoring over track and trip in August and has a recent comeback run under his belt.
