Addictive Dream has only won on Polytrack so far, but was beaten less than a length on his return at Goodwood a fortnight ago and could shape-up into a smart sprinter this year. R Woody was similarly progressive last season and could figure on his reappearance, while Spanish Bounty put last year's modest efforts behind him when running out a clear winner at Windsor on his seasonal debut with a subsequent winner behind. Baby Strange won this in 2008 and arrives in on the back of a win at Wolverhampton, but the vote goes to MAC'S POWER, who returned to form with a vengeance when dropped back to this trip at the end of last season and is taken to make a winning return.
