In the weakest race of the night DUNEEM DREAM looks the best of an inconsistent bunch so just lands the call ahead of Home while any cash for Contradiktive would be extremely interesting with him returning from over a year out. A course and distance winner in the past when much higher rated the pick showed his first spark of form for a while when finding just the one too good last time. He was short of room when things got serious that day so if he is back to form he has a real good chance at goping one better. Home is also well weighted on the pick of his old form and he gave us much encouragement by placing on his last run. The form from the race has a solid look about it so if building on the performance he should be a live contender. Condradiktive hasn't been seen for 475 days but while he has had his problems his owners have kept faith and he makes his debut for a yard, who have an impressive record with those running for them for the first time. Naledi was a winner on his last start but with extra weight to carry a repeat isn't likely while Kirsty's Lad likes it here and could get into minor money. A tough race to judge but Duneem Dream has less negatives than the others.
