Nap Of The Day: Windsor 6.50 PM

Dream of Dreams

Our Rating
4.7/5

Trainer: Sir Micheal Stoute

Jockey: Ryan Moore

Weight: 9-12

Age: 7

Form: 2080/2118-

Latest Odds: 2/5*

A very short-priced horse with a reason! Usually, I do not like to back a horse at less than 1/2 but Dream of Dreams is the real deal in this race. It could be worth lengthening the odds to 11/10 by backing it to win by 2 lengths or more.

Our Rating
3.9/5

Trainer: I Jardine

Jockey: Jamie Gormley

Age: 7

Weight: 9-2

Form: 1562-65

Latest Odds : 3/1

Hasn't won a race since July 2020. Finished 6th of 8 and 5th of 5 in the last 2. 3/1 price is way off the mark for a horse in such poor form.

  • Has 5 wins from 43 career races. All 5 have come on flat turf.
  • The red is that it races better after a break with most wins and places coming in the first 3 races after a break of at least 80 days. This time it has been poor since a 107-day break and looked way off form in the last race. 
  • Jocky Jamie Gormley has no wins in the last 14 days, covering 10 rides.
