CONSTANT DREAM has a tough task on the face of it as she's now 12lb higher than when scoring over track and trip in November. But she went very close over 6f back on this surface last time and remains open to further improvement. Confidential Creek never looked like catching the winner when runner-up here in October but drops down a grade for his return. He found Whiteflats too good in a seller on the Polytrack earlier this year but the latter will find this tougher and Lingfield winner, Outbid, makes more appeal on her first start since February.
