A switch of stables has clearly benefited Glimpse Of Gold but he is edging up the handicap. St Lawrence Gap, on the other hand, continues to tumble down the weights. Minella Beauty makes his handicap debut after placing at Fontwell and Ffos Las but doesn’t look particularly well treated. Kings Royal Hussar is now 0-18 but does have ability as does Jackson Hill, another long-standing maiden. DREAM MACHINE has a bit to find with Glimpse Of Gold on the form book but he would have a cracking chance in this if reproducing an earlier third off a higher mark at Southwell where he only weakened jumping the last.
