TRIPLE DREAM remains in fine fettle having scored at Nottingham on his latest start. He can effectively race off a 2lb lower mark here with an apprentice's allowance taken into consideration and could prove too strong for the three-year-old Knocker Knowles. The latter returned to winning ways at Bath last week and Richard Hughes takes over the reins today while winning partner Hayley Turner is reunited with Clear Praise though he's yet to score on Turf. Alpha Delta Whisky found the selection too good last time and is worse off at the weights here while Sandfrankskipsgo and Love You Louis are too inconsistent to recommend.
