Hugh Morrison's Sohraab has gone up 4lb for his win over course and distance last month when beating Judge 'n Jury and Jamie Osborne's Drawnfromthepast and there should not be a great deal between the winner and the third at the revised terms with both warranting respect. Milton Bradley's Solemn is better than he showed at Epsom last month but it is hard to back following that run and of more interest may be Ed Dunlop's Kanaf, who won his first race in a handicap on the Polytrack at Lingfield recently and is only 3lb higher in the weights now. Secret Millionaire has more to do than when winning at Musselburgh earlier this month and preference is for Chris Wall's DRIFT AND DREAM who has been in fine form this term, recording her second win from four starts when successful over course and distance last month, and she can complete a hat-trick racing off a 6lb higher mark today.
