This is the richest race of the afternoon, and it could be a profitable one for DREAM DAY, who we'll put up as the selection, in preference to Kylane and Ghaidaa. Richard Hannon's runner has had some disappointing runs, but does have ability. Outgunned at group one level this summer, the daughter of champion sprinter Oasis Dream should be more than competitive at this grade. Kylane finished ahead of the selection in a Doncaster listed race, but was rather one paced. She may be another that's not quite as good as once hoped. Ghaidaa's been placed in listed company, and has the highest official rating of the six scheduled runners. She may not appreciate much cut in the ground. Ultra competitive this, and we'll side with Dream Day.
