11/8

Having refused to race at Chelmsford, it was a different story back in blinkers when he won by 3L at Kempton last week. Still really well treated on this return to turf and if in the same mood will take plenty of beating.

9/1

Four wins from 19 visits here though it's exactly two years since last turf win and though he took a step forward on last run, needs a bit more to get back in the winners enclosure.

7/1

Had a busy spell on joining this yard in the winter and standout effort when second at Wolverhampton over 7f. Rare go at this shorter trip but if freshened up for the break can do better.

11/2

Lightly raced these days but is two from four at this track and should strip fitter for comeback run at Haydock last week so place claims.

4/1

Course winner in the past who had looked as though his best days were behind him but ran beat race for a long time when fourth at Windsor last week having met trouble in running. Cheekpieces now go on for the first time.

11/1

Front-runner who hasn't won since 2017 and although he has ran well after a break in the past, others make more appeal.

22/1

2-23 at this track and may come on for comeback run at Bath last week, but this is a fair race for the grade and not hard to look elsewhere for win purposes.

10 race maiden who has yet to even reach the frame and work to do to break duck here from 4lb out of the weights.

Forecast

Avenue Of Stars (11/8), Pastfact (4/1), Castlerea Tess (11/2), Bold Decision (7/1), Kinglami (9/1), Mad Endeavour (11/1), Creek Harbour (14/1), Jaganory (22/1), Crimson Princess (100/1)

Verdict
Avenue Of Stars looks sure to be popular having bounced right back to best in the blinkers at Kempton last week, though the worry is taking a short price about one who had refused to race prior to that. A chance is taken with BOLD DECISION with Tom Marquand a booking that really takes the eye and he may have more to come on turf. Pastfact had little luck in running at Windsor and could figure if getting the breaks.
