The toe rails are typically very storng and could easily withstand the loads you may impose with a midship mooring line. The issue you may face is the proper form of attachment. You could use a snatch block on the toe rail and lead it to a strong point like a proper size cleat, or a winch. There are cleats available that are designed to go into toe rails, but they seem pretty flimsy to me.
