A dual winner on the all-weather, Dreese drops in class for this and should figure. But SALTARELLO also has every chance at the weights and went close in a seller at Redcar during the week. John Quinn's charge may just edge this with Mountain Man also likely to be thereabouts in this grade having finished ahead of Binky Blue when also placed at Redcar on Tuesday. The remainder looks up against it on today's terms.
