Lady Erimus finished tailed off at Thirsk last time having won at the same track before that and is fitted with cheekpieces here. Interrupted Dream won over 7f at Kempton recently, though earlier efforts over today’s trip fail to boost confidence having finished behind third-placed BIG BORIS at Chepstow. The latter was beaten less than a length on his handicap debut and there should be more to come if handling the surface. Indra Dawn wasn’t beaten far when fifth at Newcastle last week while Sir Havelock would have a chance if taking part but was due to race at Newcastle yesterday.
