Jimmy Lambe has his horses in such good form that DAYTIME DREAMER can end a long losing spell on the surface. He's never been a prolific winner but is consistent enough and Megan Carberry's claim will be a bonus. Khan Tengri and Circus Act both ran well enough behind Days Ahead here a couple of weeks ago and should get involved but the veteran Hide The Evidence appears to need soft ground to show his best these days, a remark that also applies to Lady Lyrath, who hasn't proved she stays this far. Dashing Duchess was having her first start on the surface when a good fifth behind Balmont Flyer a fortnight ago and with that experience under her belt can make her presence felt.
