Timeform on The Boss's Dream

God's Own - Huntingdon 14:25

An intriguing renewal of the Peterborough Chase in which God's Own looks worth siding with. He's regularly fallen short against he very best throughout his career, but for all that he does has two top level wins under his belt, and he showed that the fire still burns bright when running out a game winner of the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter last month. He has to carry a penalty in this as a consequence, but plenty of these have something to prove, and with conditions to suit, it may be worth siding with the in-form contender.

Silver Forever - Huntingdon 15:00

Silver Forever was a very impressive winner of a bumper on debut at Chepstow last month; strongly supported in the market and making the running, before drawing clear three furlongs out on the bridle and winning easily. She's from a family of stayers and rates as a very exciting prospect. This represents a step up in class, but she appeals as the sort who can build up a sequence of wins up against her own sex. This clearly isn't a one-horse race though, with Briery Express and Emmas Joy just a couple of potential threats.

The Boss's Dream - Huntingdon 15:30

The Boss's Dream hasn't won for a long time, but to say his mark has tumbled is an understatement - he heads here 27 lb lower than his last winning mark over hurdles. As such, he could be very well-handicapped, and whilst he failed to complete on his reappearance at Hereford 11 days ago, unseating Bryony Frost, he was going well when doing so and his strength in the market that day was a big clue that he's surely capable of winning a race off this current mark. He gets a confident vote to score, ahead of Boughtbeforelunch, who showed big improvement when winning his second chase start at Southwell and is the obvious threat.
