DREAMWEAVER won off a mark of 80 on the Flat last year when trained by Ed Walker. He is not highly tried making his debut over timber and this trip shouldn’t be a problem if he settles. Halifax ran his best race over hurdles so far at Worcester last month and should be winning soon. Sister Michael is progressing with experience and will be hard to keep out of the frame but Mr Dealer is already a 10-year-old so probably lacks a bit of scope.
