PAPER DREAMS has won a couple of similar contests already this year. She added to her C&D victory in May when winning at Catterick last time and Kevin Ryan's filly looks the one to beat here. The booking of Silvestre De Sousa for Lady Platinum Club suggests she's fancied to handle the surface and she went close in a claimer at Wolverhampton in June. Brio has claims on his best efforts on turf, while it would be no surprise to see a much better effort from Salik Tag given his half-sister, Clever Omneya, is winner on Fibresand and coincidentally runs later on today's card.
