Utopian Dream and Haldaw were both placed over 1m4f at Wolverhampton on their respective latest starts but the former has a bit in hand on today’s terms and breeding suggests she’ll improve for this longer trip. But the latter comment also applies to INCONCEIVABLE, entered in the Group 2 Queen’s Vase over 1m6f at Ascot, who should be sharper today having kept on well for third over 1m2f at Newbury on her reappearance. Tuolumne Meadows is one of the more exposed as she returns to maiden company and Munstead Star has plenty of improving to do on her return to action.
