It's very difficult to warm to the chances of BLUE TIGER but if he's ever going to win a race this should be it. The Godolphin colt is looking extremely moderate and is unlikely to be wearing the all blue for much longer, though his close second to Silken Express at Ffos Las would just about be good enough. Vanity's Girl made a decent start over this trip at Doncaster but weakened very quickly when sent over 6f at Catterick and Red Baron has gone backwards after a promising run at Leicester. Tim Easterby's Never Forever is related to a couple of winners and wouldn't need to be a world-beater to make a winning start.
