Powerful Dream won at Bath last time but has to race off an 11lb higher mark back on the all-weather while a 5lb rise proved beyond Precious Plum at Chelmsford having scored over track and trip before that. But AQUADABRA has shown steady progress and after just missing out over today’s distance at Lingfield on her latest start, she looks capable of recording her fourth win of the year. Most of the remainder have been struggling off similar marks including Miss Gargar and Fairy Fast though Angel Force may improve on her second start after wind surgery.
