CORVAIR (NAP) led for most of the way over 7f at Chelmsford on his debut before the potentially useful winner burst clear. This shorter trip will suit on that evidence and Simon Crisford’s charge is preferred to Lexington Dash. The latter also showed ability on his introduction over 6f at Lingfield and that looks stronger form than Where's Mick’s second over a longer trip here last time. Tomorrow's Dream is a half-sister to a couple of winners and the Haggas filly is worth noting along with fellow newcomer Splendidly.
