Verdict

Plenty with chances but DIXIE'S DREAM makes appeal to give the relentless Hannon yard another success. A consistent juvenile, he shaped nicely on his comeback run when fourth of 13 on the polytrack behind Famous Poet. That was a really good sharpener and he can reap the benefit here returning to turf with Ryan Moore aboard. Alkadi is a potent danger though as this looks to be her optimum trip and ground. She has gone really well on both turf starts in Scotland and there should be more to come after just the four runs for Mark Johnston. Fourth Of June went better than the finishing positions suggest behind Rewarded at Newmarket and should appreciate the drop back in trip, whilst Fabled City showed some juvenile promise and should come on now sent handicapping.
