Silent Moment remains out of sorts but stablemate LAYALI DUBAI is on the up. She's won her last couple of starts with something to spare and can defy a penalty for last week's victory at Lingfield. This is much tougher than the race Badea won here on Monday but Infinite Hope has claims on her recent third at Kempton. Nordic Quest should also be in the mix but Moderator makes more appeal back over the same trip as when scoring at Epsom in September where he beat the re-opposing Rythmic.
