The Tiger made a winning reappearance in soft ground at Ripon and there should be more to come from him but King Of Windsor needed 1m2f at Ayr to return to winning ways. ASIFA couldn't catch Henry Clay at Kempton last time but can race off the same mark here and is taken to go one better. Cono Zur is likely to make another bold bid from the front and Position is not out of this having posted one of his better displays when runner-up at Southwell last week. Irish raider Star Links is a C&D winner and could also go well in an open contest.
