34/333-16Miriam's Dream (IRE)711-3A J MartinR C Colgan116


Miriam's Dream, who won a maiden at Roscommon in October, was engaged in the 2.35 at Punchestown yesterday. Speed Dial completed a double here and at Wexford but has climbed the ratings as a consequence and couldn't complete the hat-trick at Down Royal. He's still likely to get competitive here along with Acriveen, though she's another whose hat-trick attempt was thwarted by an elevated handicap mark. OZETA doesn't look an obvious candidate having pulled up on her two latest starts but she's better than that having won a Listed race at Auteuil and scoring for Nicky Henderson at Taunton. She can't get much lower in the weights and can surprise more fancied rivals.
