Verdict

OPINE and Caffe Macchiato are well treated on Flat form and have both undergone breathing surgery ahead of this switch to a handicap. The former has looked the more natural of the pair over obstacles and gets a handy age allowance, so shades the vote. White Walker is another likely improver in what could be a lively betting heat.

  1. OPINE (IRE)
