Haunted Dream missed out on a hat-trick when going close at Newmarket and should be in the mix once again but ADJUVANT has the more scope. A close-up third at Doncaster on his reappearance and first start gelded, Michael Bell’s charge looks up to winning off his current mark. Franz makes his handicap debut after finding one too good at Redcar but has yet to encounter fast ground and Boulivar steps up in trip for his handicap bow. Rollajam looks best of the remainder.
