Triple Dream got his nose in front on fast ground at Lingfield last time with Wooden King behind. The latter has since close back at the same track but both are upped in grade today. Bertoliver usually has one win a season in him but it may not be today as first-time blinkers are applied so a chance is taken on the veteran OSIRIS WAY. He went close off higher marks last year and with a recent pipe-opener under his belt may have still have the ability to land this. Jamie Spencer's presence on Invincible Lad suggests a big run is expected from him on his seasonal bow and The Wee Chief could prove best of the rest.
