TRIPLE DREAM won the 2010 renewal and scored off today's mark on the Polytrack back in February. He's won again at Lingfield since then and Milton Bradley's charge could prove the one to beat in an uninspiring handicap. Bilash won over C&D in May but ran poorly on his latest start at Pontefract when Master Of Disguise finished a close-up third. The latter has been below par since, however, and Black Baccara has yet to win off a mark as high as today's. Moorhouse Girl is lightly raced considering her age and may be capable of better.
