Young Tiger will be having his first start on the surface but handled Tapeta at Newcastle well enough earlier this month, though a 6lb rise makes this more difficult. ARZAAK scored over the course and distance in November and, though not in the best of form subsequently, the assessor has given him a chance as he's a massive 17lb lower so gets the vote. Piazon has won six times around here so has to be on the shortlist but recent Chepstow winner Atty's Edge has never raced on an artificial surface.
