Won a valuable fillies handicap at Down Royal in June and successful in a maiden hurdle here at the festival; has run in two handicaps since then; big price when towards the rear in the Petingo over 1m5f at Leopardstown on Saturday; cheekpieces now.

Hasn't been seen in going on two years (has been dropped 5lb and gelded in the interim); made the running more than once and should be able to get his own way against several hold-up performers if that's the plan; the market will give some clues.

Haunted Dream

9st 12lb

J: Daniel Muscutt

T: Ed Dunlop

Has been running consistently well in top turf handicaps all summer and wasn't best served by the drop to 1m1f when not beaten far in the Cambridgeshire latest; has a much better strike-rate on the AW (4-6) than turf (1-16) and needs considering.

T: Ed Dunlop

Has a modest 1-15 strike-rate on turf but he's run really well in defeat in hot handicaps at about 1m2f on his last four starts (good to firm-good to soft); there can be optimism he'll be fine over a strongly run 1m1f and he's a solid each-way contender.

Acts on good to firm and good to soft; only 1-14 on turf, compared to 4-6 on AW, but is consistent in the main and brings strong recent form; ties in with Astro King on John Smith's Cup running and performed very well in similar event at Glorious Goodwood since; holds solid claims.

Useful 2yo for Aidan O'Brien (Group 1 placed) but it's been a steady decline since ,albeit he ran well when fourth of 14 at Wetherby (1m2f, good) last time; down another 1lb and anyone's guess if he can build on that, but he would have a good chance if he can.
