Ovett made all to score over 6f at Lingfield last time but similar tactics may set the race up for MIDNIGHT DREAM in this. The latter won a maiden at Wolverhampton on his latest start with a subsequent winner back in third and he should get a good tow around here. Modern Lady just failed off today's mark at Lingfield last week with a disappointing Tartan Blue behind and Multitask didn't look to stay the 7f at the same course last time but had scored over the minimum trip before that. Marmot Bay's good recent form has been in platers and she's harder to fancy in this company.
