Invisible Hunter will need to step up on his recent efforts to come out best but Classic Colori has decent claims. He found only the higher rated Brae Hill too good in a Sandown claimer last time. OCEAN TEMPEST has been running well without success this season and went agonisingly close at Newmarket on his latest start. This looks less competitive and John Ryan's charge can record a deserved success. Fraserburgh takes on better company after scoring at Carlisle but Mount Tiger is not easily overlooked as he won his maiden over track and trip in good style and has further scope for improvement.
