Serena Brotherton is a cut above among lady amateur riders and her mount, One Last Dream, can't be ignored on his best form. Storm Runner boasts a decent record on the Polytrack this winter but we'll take a chance on the fitness of BILLION DOLLAR KID. Nicely drawn, he was placed over a mile here and at Chepstow on his final two starts last year off today's mark and Emily Jones is a decent booking. Course and distance winner Takitwo and fellow veteran Benandonner may be the pick of the remainder.
