Tigger is very one-paced and always seem to find at least one too good. That may be the case again here, while Hawk Gold may still be too high in the weights and has a lot to find to reverse Fontwell running last season with Winning Show. Tecktal is still a maiden so we'll take a chance on the fitness of CITRUS MARK. Paul Webber's string are running well and his six-year-old was in good heart in the spring, narrowly going down on his final start at Stratford in May. He's 5lb higher now but that's the best form on offer in this contest.
