McCarthy Mor, a half-brother to two 6f winners, could go well but stablemate Tiger Twenty Two makes more appeal. The latter dwelt when the stalls opened here on his debut but was finishing best of all and looks a sure-fire future winner. Richard Fahey also saddles the filly Imshivalla though, in common with a few of these, she may be better for the experience. Mick Channon's juveniles are running well and Jallota must have every chance after a promising debut at Newbury where he met trouble in-running. But we just prefer ROYAL MEZYAN, who wasn't given a hard time at Ascot but shaped with plenty of promise. The extra furlong should be right up his street. Newcomers Kommander Kirkup, Munjally and Viva Verglas are all worth noting for future reference.
