Verdict

TISLAAM is in great form and looks the best call for this race as he looks for a hat-trick. The cheek-pieces have brought out the best in him in the last two races and they are applied again here. Although Alan McCabe's runner is carrying top weight he offers the most appeal in such good heart. Real Diamond has won here before and after a decent second over a furlong less here last time she has to be considered. Dhhamaan won here in July but he has shown very little subsequently.
