    Definitely a “changing of the guard” race for me this year. The initial entry stage is normally littered with Cliff Horses, Notebook Horses, and real favourites, but definitely thin on the ground this time around.

    Pettochside fits the bill, but would need to run well today at Sandown to get in, and Accession would be another, but he needs the heavens to open. Growl would be the pick of the bunch in this category, and 25’s will have long disappeared if he lines up here, and he’s dropping in the weights.

    First to catch the eye is Dancing Star off of 100. Needs to bounce back, but not that long ago he was winning The Stewards Cup on 102, and the handicapper has finally relented. 25’s makes him very interesting, and I’ll keep an eye on him should he run at the weekend.

    Foolaad would probably be my #1 at the moment, he just looks to have bags of potential, and he just keeps delivering. Not raised for his second at York, and at 25’s, I’m close to playing.

    Ice Age has been in the notebook for this since The Curragh last season, and his recent run only confirmed his potential, and he looks a real player.

    I haven’t forgotten the way in which Teruntum Star won at York last year, and he’s another who’s very much on the radar.

    No bet yet, and like The Hunt Cup, loads to chew over, and loads of time to change the mind. This is the early shortlist though, with Foolaad, very much the #1

    Foolaad 25’s

    Ice Age 20’s
    Growl 25’s
    Dancing Star 25’s
    Teruntum Star 25’s

    Played two antepost NRNB for this with Bet365.

    If the latter runs, I’ll be cashing out on the former.

    Blue De Vega @ 20/1 & Dreamfield @ 9/2

    Dreamfield is going to run lads.

    The banker of the entire week

    Is anybody worried about the “Bounce” with Dreamfield?

    He looked superb on his debut in 2016 but then scrambled home when hot favourite next time. That followed with him missing 2017 and 569 days off the track. Obviously he won well last time and could still be well handicapped, as Jubilee and July Cup entries might suggest him to be but at 4/1 or so in a massive field you wouldn’t want to have any concerns.

    Hard to be confident in a Wokingham and I may not play in the race at all. Maybe £1 EW six places on something at a big price.

    Agree Steve, not for me at the prices, and could bounce as you say.

    No ta.

    I’ve bet Dreamfield at 6s but he’s too short now at 4s. Bounce doesn’t concern, had long enough to get over LTO.

    This is the best shape to a race all week. Short favourite in a heritage handicap screams value about the rest of the field. I’ll probably have another two running for me e/w at prices.

    DANCING STAR at 25/1 is my bet here
