DREAM BERRY is penalised for winning in France in October but may be good enough on his debut for Jonjo O'Neill. Colla Pier has won a couple of handicap hurdles in Ireland but looks pretty exposed off her current mark after 17 starts over timber while course winner Closest Friend has a bit to find with both of the above on these terms. Ballycamp found the progressive Francis Of Assisi too good at Southwell in September while Arabian Oasis made a promising start over hurdles with a third on good ground here back in August.
