The Hannon yard is hard to ignore having won the last two renewals. TRUTH OR DARE looks sure to go close after finding a lesser-fancied stablemate too good over track and trip last time and can confirm superiority with Solo Hunter and Aristocracy. Istimraar could prove a bigger danger as he finished a close-up third on his debut at Leicester and should figure with improvement expected. The remainder with experience make no appeal but newcomer Festival Theatre is related to a couple of winners and worth a second glance in the betting.
