Verdict

REQUIEMS DREAM is difficult to oppose and will likely start a short price for this given today’s weak opposition. Mark Johnston’s filly showed plenty of early pace when runner-up over 6f at Ripon last week and this shorter trip should suit on that evidence. Simply Susan is a half-sister to a winner on the all-weather and won’t have to be anything out of the ordinary to come out best of the remainder given they’ve yet to show any form worthy of a mention.
