Verdict

HALLING'S TREASURE looks vulnerable after three defeats but in the absence of credible opposition he's given another chance. The form of his latest defeat by Shantou Ed has been let down by the winner but he had a couple of useful types behind and this is his best opportunity so far. The others with form over timber look moderate. Recent Dundalk winner Our Manekineko should improve for his debut while Shutter Island is slowly getting the hang of things but it could be a newcomer who provides the main threat with Kitten Rock, runner-up in a Longchamp claimer last summer, possibly the best of them. Ebony Roc won a couple of races on Polytrack for Amanda Perrett and Gordon Elliott, who trains the selection, will get the best out of him.
