Verdict

Hidden Talent didn't show much on his UK debut but is probably capable of better. Dance With Dragons was second at Leicester last time while Veeraya is unexposed and would be very interesting if attracting market support on her belated reappearance. Whipper Snapper beat AL UDEID by a short-head at Lingfield earlier this month but the runner-up is slightly better off at the weights now and that may be enough for him to turn the tables and take this. Liberty Jack has been placed in a couple of maidens over further this year but would need to find improvement for the fitting of a hood to win here.
