We take a chance with PARISIAN DREAM who was fourth here on his first start this season. He should benefit from that opener and if he can take advantage of the course experience over today's trip then he can emerge victorious. If the selection fails to come on for his first run out this year then Red China Blues who has disappointed in two runs since winning at Carlisle is waiting in the wings. Stonecrabstomorrow is a course and distance winner and returns to action after a break since March. He was heading backwards in his efforts before this absence and the rest from action may be beneficial. The jockey booking on Karate Queen is eye-catching and she has the advantage in the weights.
