Kiss The Stars, who prefers quick ground, has only won once in 14 starts but is running well enough to get involved though she was behind BIG BAD LILY here in June. There was plenty of give in the ground that day, which suits the winner, and she looks on a lenient enough mark to gain her fifth career success. Pearl Earing will also love the conditions and she's won twice in her last three when the ground has been soft. She's gone up 8lb for her victory at Fairyhouse in May but Connor King can claim his 3lb allowance and David Wachman's filly should get into the frame. Glassatura has mainly raced over 7f but won over this track and trip on her debut and has competed at a higher level recently.
