Verdict

None of the three-year-olds in this looks particularly progressive. Authoritarian may prove the best of them, ahead of Love Tattoo, but he's been climbing the weights and was only third off this mark at Bath last time, behind the unlucky-in-running Cyril The Squirrel. Karen George's charge is in good heart while fellow veteran South Cape is well treated on his old form but was beaten more than three lengths behind Catchanova in an amateurs' race at Goodwood last time. Uncle Dermot could be interesting off bottom weight with Fallon on board but we'll give another chance to ALSHAZAH, who seems best in a strongly-run race at this trip despite being campaigned over further in the main. He was successful over C&D two runs ago and Ian Burns' 7lb claim will help his cause again today.
