Kevin Ryan's Brave Dream has run some reasonable races in defeat but he is becoming expensive to follow after six starts and looks best left out of calculations in race taken to go to Richard Fahey's INSIDE, who looks the pick of the two runners from the yard ahead of Cheeky Wee Red. The selection ran promisingly on her debut when a close third behind Malgoof at Newastle earlier this month and she would not need to improve much on that effort to give her handler another winner. Mark Johnston introduces a son of Lucky Story in Always De Man, who could be of interest first time up but the yard's two-year-olds are normally better for the run and of more interest may be Indian Giver, who showed improved form when second over course and distance in this grade last time.
