Verdict

A winner at Chelmsford, Book of Dreams bids for hat-trick having won easily in testing ground at Musselburgh last month. But he’s been raised 10lb for that success while Crownthorpe remains 12lb higher than last year’s win at Sandown. Regular Income is upped in class having won at Nottingham in November but Che Bella will appreciate the return to a mile after struggling on last month’s reappearance over 1m2f at Doncaster. Mametz Wood handles the going and was placed at Southwell recently but KRIPKE won a maiden on the Fibresand last month and David Barron’s charge gets the vote to show further progress now handicapping for the first time.
