Verdict

Four times a winner over hurdles, DREAMSOFTHEATRE looks set to break his duck over fences. He's been placed in all three starts over the larger obstacles including at this venue last month. Hollow Penny went very close on his chasing bow at Worcester and has a shout while Kitegen won at Kempton in March but has gone off the boil since. Steel Summit was tailed off when racing from out of the weights in a handicap last time but had scored at Ffos Las before that.
