Verdict

Both Harvey's Hope and Tobrata have bits of form in soft ground but neither are the most reliable. Generous Dream will handle the going and may well figure if at her best on her first start since April but MOHEEBB looks a safer proposition. He scored twice in testing ground over a mile here last year and, given he went close over 2m on his latest outing, today's distance is not expected to be a problem. Attention Seaker is up 6lb for her win on fast ground at Beverley but still looks best of the rest.
