Ambleside had Gabrial The Master and Dali's Lover close up in the places over this trip at Beverley and there's little between the trio, though this track is nowhere near as stiff and it may be best to look elsewhere. Majeed's two runs have been on Polytrack and he steps up markedly from scoring over 1m1f at Wolverhampton but the distance should prove ideal for MOMBASA. He scored over a mile on heavy ground as a juvenile and made a decent comeback behind the well-handicapped High Troja at Leicester when battling on strongly.
