Verdict

IBRAHIMOVIC has improved with each of his three starts to date and further progress is anticipated here now moving up in trip for this handicap debut. Michael Bell's representative gets the nod ahead of Tower of London, who landed a listed race in decisive fashion recently and he looks dangerous. Aidan O'Brien also saddles another appealing candidate in Hippodrome, while the hat-trick seeking Matt Connor and Dubawi Spectre are others to consider.

  1. IBRAHIMOVIC (IRE)
