FormscanBy Michael Graham - THEONEWEDREAMOF ought to go well with heavy ground very much the order of the day. Gavin Cromwell's filly made up a lot of ground to be placed over 1m6f on testing ground in the Curragh at the end of last season. She is switching back to the Flat after a stint hurdling during which she won on soft ground at Punchestown in January. Bolero was runner-up over an extended 1m3f at this track in September. She signed off with placed efforts in heavy-ground handicaps at Navan (over a similar trip) and at Galway. Deep Sigh won on soft ground in Britain and makes her Irish debut for John McConnell. She is up in trip, but her dam was placed over 1m4f in France which gives hope that she will stay. Carslake showed an aptitude for heavy ground when third in a maiden hurdle at Cork last week. He could get in the mix off a lowly mark. Noel Meade is in good form and his Too Bright is another to consider.
