Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - The lightly-weighted THATS THE DREAM should go well here. Owned by a grouping that includes two members of the Note The Link Syndicate, owners of the 2010 Irish Grand National heroine, Bluesea Cracker, this youngster won a point-to-point at Dawstown in May of last year. Thats The Dream showed a determined attitude to oblige on that occasion and his track form so far looks progressive. He should be well-capable of making his presence felt now. Missie Ella won the race at this course, when Thats The Dream was fourth, last time out, so this consistent Barathea mare has to be respected again. Several others look capable of at least gaining a placing and they include, Zekarya (handicap first-timer) and The Blarney Rose (goes up in trip).
