Race Verdict

WEBBERYS DREAM looked a nice prospect when winning over 2m5f at Wincanton in January and that form has since been franked. He meets Easter Meteor on 5lb better terms than he would in a handicap and he is likely to take all the beating. Emma Lavelle's representative looks a clear second best though and is the only conceivable danger to the selection, barring accidents. Heron Bay should fare best of the rest.

Selection: Webberys Dream        Danger: Easter Meteor        Alternative: Heron Bay
