A decent prize but not many arrive in good form and Shimmering Dawn failed to fire on a trip over to Naas last time. She’d landed a hat-trick including a couple of course and distance wins before that but is drawn wide today. Unabated finished in front of Desert Doctor when landing an optional claimer here last month while Alemaratalyoum has been thereabouts over 7f on Turf recently. But DREAM TODAY should be sharper for a recent reappearance having won a valuable sprint at Meydan early in the year and Jamie Osborne’s charge gets the vote racing off a 3lb lower mark. Almufti has undergone wind surgery since last in action and is fitted with a tongue-tie today while Warsaw Road won here for Luca Cumani last year and makes a belated debut for new connections. Restive Spirit also returns to action for a new yard attempting 6f for the first time.
