Verdict

Daytime Dreamer won this last year at 25/1 from a 3lb higher mark but has hardly picked his feet up since on the Flat or over jumps. Visions Of Johanna won a claimer here in May and a seller at Wolverhampton last month but has been well beaten subsequently. AMIR PASHA doesn't win often but he's a good ride for an apprentice and has one of the more experienced riders on board. He should be good enough though Obara D'Avril will have her supporters after her best run for a very long time over 1m1f at Redcar on Sunday as she will be racing from a lower handicap mark here. The veteran Lucayan Dancer is 16lb lower than when last successful and showed a little more dash in a claimer here a week ago.
