Tagseed has been in good form for William Haggas of late, winning his last three starts, and he does not seem to be too harshly treated having only been raised 4lbs for the latest of those successes but they have all been over seven furlongs so the drop back to six may not be ideal and preference is for WE HAVE A DREAM, who is preferred to Wildcat Wizard. Paul Cole's gelding disappointed at Windsor last time but placed efforts at Ascot and Newbury previously represent fair form and he has solid claims if able to reproduce a similar level of form today. Walter Swinburn's Shifting Star is closely matched with Wildcat Wizard on running behind Rileyskeepingfaith at Newbury and he also disappointed at Windsor last time but cannot be ruled out. Abraham Lincoln has been running consistently well and has to be considered but he is strictly held by the selection on running at Epsom last time so looks booked for a place at best, while Mick Channon's Kerrys Requiem has paid the penalty at the hands of the handicapper for her win at Goodwood last month. The vote then goes the way of Willie Muir's We Have A Dream, who apart from one below par effort at Ascot in May has done little wrong in four starts this term, and he can gain a well deserved first success of the campaign racing off the same mark as when a close second at Epsom last week.
