Chasca has a little to prove after a disappointing run just nine days ago so a safer option may be TRIPLE DREAM with the well handicapped Ghost Dancer also deserving respect. Milton Bradley has a strong hand here as he saddles Brazilian Brush as well as the latter pair named. The ex-Morrison Brazilian Brush has been struggling for form but the ex-Cumani Ghost Dancer showed his first signs of life for a while when chasing home Gwilym at Lingfield. He's well enough handicapped if he can build on that but marginal preference is for Triple Dream who may not be entirely straightforwards but he has been holding his form well and remains on a fair mark following his win at Bath where Bateleur was behind. Chasca won well at Folkestone in April but she had been off the track until her appearance just over a week ago where she ran poorly. This is notably less competitive and she may have needed the run but it would have been preferable to have seen more from her. Sydneysider is worth a market check, Azure Mist represents a yard in tip-tip form but Peopleton Brook is held by Ghost Dancer on Lingfield form so, all in all, Triple Dream appears to be the best option.
