Verdict

The splendid run of Uno Mas came to a halt the last day and it may well be that the gelding will now require a little respite from the assessor, having been raised a total of 23lb since scoring at Hereford in early January. He should still remain competitive but HIS DREAM was impressive when his late thrust brought victory over course and distance last month and is taken to build on that performance off a 6lb higher mark. Flying Verse, second that day, is better off at the weights now and looks a danger to all but we'll stay with the O'Neill horse as his style of victory that day did impress. King Cool and Buster Edwards are also of note in an open handicap.
