Verdict

Ahtoug had looked a progressive type when landing a handicap at Chester in May and was reported unsuited by soft ground when well beaten in a Sandown Listed contest the following month. Firestreak has some decent form here though he's never won on an artificial surface while Cinderkamp is climbing the weights and could need another furlong. The Argentine Group 3 winner Enjoy Dubai has yet to get going here but takes a significant drop in class and has to be respected along with the progressive Garbah, though a high draw won't help the latter's cause. LORD TIGER finished behind Garbah last time but a very slow start contributed to that defeat and, if managing to get away better, can reverse the form and take this.
