Love You Louis has every chance in this company on his return to action but a lack of race fitness may be his undoing on his first start since September and ABOVE THE STARS makes more appeal. She came up against much higher rated rivals when third in a claimer here last month and is preferred to the out of form Atlantic Beach. Johnny Splash won his first race in 17 starts when landing a seller over C&D last week but this is a tougher assignment.
