Verdict

Speedfit Boy is becoming expensive to follow and his ability to handle this softer surface has to be taken on trust. SILVEE wasn't beaten far at Salisbury last time and though that was a weak race this is little better and John Bridger's mare does go on the ground. She's preferred to stablemate Surrey Dream, third in a seller here earlier in the month, and gets the nod. Wishformore is probably the pick of the remainder ahead of the unpredictable Kings 'n Dreams and out-of-form Jackie Love.
