STADIUM OF LIGHT can reverse recent form with Dream Spinner and can account too for Tuscan Gold. Hughie Morrison's gelding will want a decent pace to the race, and can make full use of the weight advantage over Dream Spinner to break his maiden tag. Yard and jockey won this race three years ago. A few lengths behind last time out, Dream Spinner couldn't follow up that win when trying to repeat a course and distance win at Nottingham. Tuscan Gold steps back down in trip after a second successive placing. He should appreciate the stiff finish here. Blinka Me was just behind Tuscan Gold when the latter won at Nottingham, and has an extra pound in hand. Most of these are running consistently well and returning home with place money. Taking the winners' cheque tonight though we think will be Stadium Of Light.
