Verdict

Tigers Tale completed a hat-trick around this time last year and though now 12lb higher he continues to run well and should be in the firing-line. VOLCANIC WIND hasn't had much experience but showed up well on his return at Haydock when failing to obtain a clear run and should be ready for this so gets the vote. Commend has been well supported in all of his nine starts but won just once when long odds-on at Carlisle. He's been dropped in trip for this and shouldn't be dismissed while Sir Mike wasn't harshly treated with a 4lb rise after his victory on Polytrack at Lingfield. Poetic Lord appears best on the latter track.
