Verdict

Point North has been raised further in the weights for finishing second and is now 9lb higher than when scoring at Nottingham in May. Dream Ally won over track and trip a fortnight ago but will find this tougher off his new mark while the likes of Putin and Glastonberry regularly make the frame on this surface but don't win very often. Soft ground at Epsom was a legitimate excuse for MUKHABARAT's below-par effort last time and it's too soon to write him off. The Godolphin colt won his maiden at Doncaster last month and won't need to improve much on that to come out best.
