Addictive Dream had been in good form before a modest effort at Lingfield where both he and Ballista finished down the field. Forest Edge finished ahead of both last time despite failing to land a hat-trick and has leading claims on today's terms. MASAMAH is hard to catch right but is perfectly capable of winning at this level. Usually campaigned over 5f, he was only beaten a short-head at Haydock on the only occasion he's raced over today's trip this year so Marco Botti's charge gets the nod. Peace Seeker has a stack to find at the weights and will do well to figure.
