Verdict

Toby's Dream has plenty of scope for improvement and is the choice to land this competitive nursery, with Transaction, Lubeck and Turnaround just three of many possible dangers. Mark Johnston's colt improved markedly on his debut run at Leicester, and after racing up with the pace kept on well when landing a modest contest at Carlisle. The stable has an abundance of juvenile talent so fact that they rely on this lightly raced son of Mujadil suggests that there is plenty more to come. Transaction goes from strength to strength and was most impressive when landing a Newmarket nursery last time. Meanwhile Lubeck, like the selection, looks certain to improve on what he has achieved so far, which has included a victory in a decent Newmarket maiden. Turnaround is another lightly raced performer and should go close with ground and trip in his favour. My Princess is another to consider in a very open event, but Toby's Dream is on a upward curve and can land the spoils
