    Verdict

    A highly competitive opener attracting many in-form types such as Lucayan Dancer who confirmed the promise of his debut outing when comfortably landing the odds at Brighton. Ed Dunlop's charge remains open to plenty of improvement and should be well suited by the step up in trip while the Richard Hannon pair of Rebate and Looking Down both hold claims on recent placed efforts. Recent winners Boston Lodge and Chin Chin are others to consider but the TEAMtalk preference is for Tiber Tiger who is clearly on the upgrade judged on an impressive six-length victory over this trip in a minor event at Newmarket last week and can take advantage of a lenient mark having been turned out quickly to complete a hat-trick.
