6.00 Wolverhampton: Class 6 Handicap, 7f
Gelded since his most recent and actually rather promising run, Oriental Dream makes appeal from a feather weight in this poor low-grade Handicap. The four year old showed some okay form when racing on better ground, while never took to cut in the ground.
He was outpaced at Redcar last month, but finished well enough in the 6f sprint; the form of this race works out rather well.
Oriental Dream tries the All-Weather for the first time today and that may bring out some improvement. He is bred to go well on it, as his sire Sharmadal has a really good record on the synthetics.
Up in trip to 7f again should suit and he has a good draw plus a a 7lb claimer in the saddle. Not too many excused today, and would be no surprise to see him go close.
Oriental Dream @ 20/1 Coral – 5pts Win
