Verdict

Abraham Monro has mainly been confined to 6f since his maiden success a year ago but generally stays on so the extra shouldn't be a problem. ELLIES IMAGE scored on soft ground at Ayr in May but doesn't mind quick going and has been successful over the course and distance. She's won off much higher marks in the past and this looks within her capabilities. Thrust Control hasn't won since scoring here a year ago and was beaten in a seller last time. Imperator Augustus is just 3lb higher than when scoring at Musselburgh in May and can carry his big weight with distinction.
