Phase Shift has improved over hurdles this year and could figure if translating that form back to the Flat. Neighbourhood and El Bravo have done all their winning on the all-weather so far, including their latest starts, but Silver Tigress went close at Newcastle last time and makes more appeal. The latter can reverse earlier running with Brunello today and Mr Snoozy also has a shout off his current mark. HURAKAN carries top weight as he drops in class after a close-up fourth at Chepstow and Richard Price's charge gets the vote in this lesser contest.
