Fille De Reve(5.45 Haydock, nap)

A sound surface is important to this filly, who wasn't disgraced on groundshe wouldn't have liked in the Fred Darling last time. She should improvefor that outing and appears nicely treated.

Racing Post Ratings: Simon Turner

Italian Riviera(4.05 Catterick)

Comfortable winner of a similar handicap over course and distance last time and is sure to go close if finding the required improvement.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Copper Knight(2.30 Musselburgh)

A dual scorer last term, he is entitled to improve for his recent spin at York and should be in the shake-up.

Longshot: Sam King

Soldier In Action(3.40 Newmarket)

Mark Johnston's horse is extremely well handicapped onhis form from last year and, after a promising run last time out at Epsom, he can go well at abig price.

Ireland: Tony O'Hehir

Theobald(3.55 Curragh)

Seventh in the Irish 2,000 Guineas two weeks ago, the Jim Bolger-trained colt drops in class forthis 1m2f Listed event. Kevin Manning's mount gets the vote to account for his six rivals.
