PRINCE OF DREAMS may be able to maintain the good run of his yard by getting the better of Plus Ultra, Royal Etiquette and Theology. The last two named are only separated by a pound on official ratings and Harry Dunlop's charge may find a little improvement for the fitting of headgear and the step up in trip. Theology's Derby entries are beginning to look a little fanciful but he may yet prove good enough to win a small race whilst Plus Ultra posted a vastly improved performance to make the frame on his reappearance although that form, on a line through the third, appears to leave him with something to find. The first four on the racecard all have experience under National Hunt Rules under their belts and are of some interest whilst Refuse To Give Up is related to some smart performers and needs a market check. However, preference is for Prince Of Dreams who made a pleasing start to his career when chasing home Gardening Leave on his sole start at two. The winner landed a Listed race at Newmarket over the weekend to give the form a boost and Prince Of Dreams may have been found a reasonable opportunity in which to shed his maiden tag.
