Verdict

This doesn’t look a strong race and PATIENT DREAM may well defy an absence. He’s switched to Donald McCain’s yard since last in action and earlier placed efforts over timber suggests he can go close back in a handicap for this. Strong Team won here in the summer of last year and placed back over timber at Newcastle while Hildenley has won on the Flat since last seen over hurdles. Monjules won a juvenile hurdle here last year and has joined Harry Fry subsequently.
