Verdict

It will be a surprise if SUR LA MER is not a major factor in this opener. He has his first start for Dan Skelton but had some decent form to his name in maiden events in Ireland earlier in the year and isn't overtaxed here. Dr Dalwhinny has already been placed twice over course and distance but disappointed at Cartmel last time while A Tail Of Intrigue has become expensive to follow, though still makes more appeal than Larteta who is better over further.
