Grandmas Dream looks a shade high in the weights on the evidence of her two outings since winning a maiden at Lingfield, but last year's Ayr winner Tro Nesa has every chance with a recent run under her belt. However, PALAIS GLIDE did nothing wrong when suffering a couple of narrow margin defeats at Kempton recently and, dropped in class here, Richard Hannon's filly gets the vote to go one better. The remainder look to be facing a tough task though Winniepeg has shown plenty of early pace and may appreciate this first try over the minimum trip.
