In depth

Verdict

Call Me A Star and Eleven Fifty Nine are old rivals. The former invariably comes out on top when they meet but both have a bit to find if they are to overturn Newbury running with MA FILLEULE. Nicky Henderson's filly was only beaten a neck by She Ranks Me on that occasion and the winner has franked the form since. The latter is trained by Donald McCain, who saddles Doyly Carte here. She is worth a try in this grade after easy wins at Musselburgh and Catterick but was behind Eleven Fifty Nine and Call Me A Star in a Listed Aintree bumper in April. Mischievous Milly's Fakenham win was impressive and she shouldn't be ignored while Hidden Identity has some useful form in the book and is another to consider.
