In depth

Verdict

Dream Alliance gets the confident vote here with Supreme's Legacy and Triple Mint rating the main dangers. The selection was a good sixth behind Black Jack Ketchum in a much better race at the Cheltenham Festival. That horse has since franked the form and with the drop in grade in his favour he is impossible to oppose under his optimum conditions. Supreme's Legacy rates the main danger on his latest second behind One Sniff. However he has a little to find with the selection on official bhb ratings and for that reason he is opposed. Triple Mint won well last time out when beating Major Catch but he has a penalty for that win and that may just find him out in this more competitive affair. Of the remainder Marchensis is from a yard in form and could go well at a price but her overall form leaves her with plenty to find and with this in mind for the winner we return to Dream Alliance who sets a fair standard.
