Lingfield winner Seven Veils has had five starts on Polytrack and is still awaiting a first success. Off a career-high mark, she's worth opposing here. Aleksandar is edging closer to that elusive first victory while Up Ten Down Two has been showing up well of late, though was readily brushed aside off this mark at Catterick last time. MODERATOR appeared to have plenty in hand when winning an apprentices' race over 1m4f at Epsom nine days ago under Harry Bentley. Lightly-raced, he already has winning form on Polytrack and escapes a penalty for that success so can follow up here. Silver Samba may not have handled heavy ground last time but has looked progressive prior to that run and should prove the pick of the remainder.
