I Am A Dreamer is the only runner with the advantage of experience but, with an RPR of 75, he does not set a daunting standard. There are several interesting colts among the debutants, not least TRUE BELIEF who is a likely type on breeding and whose trainer has a good record with juveniles at this track. Burning Lake is the token second choice but there are a few others with decent credentials and a market check is esssential.[Steve Boow]

Beaten favourite on Musselburgh debut (last of three) but probably improved on that effort when fourth of eight at Newmarket's Craven meeting (5f, good to soft); the only runner with the advantage of experience but sets only a fair standard and takes on several interesting newcomers.
