Ferney Boy has only won once but loves soft ground and can give a good account as can They All Laughed, who has dropped to a fair mark these days. DAYTIME DREAMER is hardly the most consistent of performers but he's 6lb lower than when scoring over the C&D last year and unlike most of these has a recent victory to his credit. He can take this poor contest in which Flora's Pride, a winner over hurdles in May, is given a chance and Illustration wouldn't be a shock winner despite his moderate form to date.
